IMSc has a highly sophisticated user community working in such computationally challenging research areas as lattice gauge theories, Monte-Carlo simulations and large scale symbolic manipulations in physics and mathematics.
- Every user has a desktop machine which is connected to IMSc's internal LAN.
- Wireless connectivity to the LAN is also available on campus.
- Computational facilities are provided by Cluster Super Computers and Multi-CPU, Multi-core SMP Systems.
Apart from Fortran and C libraries, symbolic manipulation packages like MACSYMA, MATHEMATICA and FORM are available in addition to graphics packages like SuperMongo (on Sun). IMSL, Numerical Recipes and MATLAB libraries are also available.
Internet access is provided by NKN (1 Gbps) and a 42Mbps fibre link via Airtel.
