CompNet Affiliated Labs

CompNet research is funded by fellowships, grants, and contracts from federal agencies and private foundations that support research in life sciences, mathematics, artificial intelligence, and engineering. Students and faculty have access to powerful computing resources that support large-scale simulations of behavioral and brain models and applications. Data analysis and numerical simulations are carried out on a state-of-the-art computer network composed of Xeon-based workstations, Macintoshes, and 64-bit PCs. A PC cluster running Boston University’s own version of Linux is available as a distributed computational environment. All students have program-supplied PCs on their desktops (running either Microsoft Windows or BU Linux). Mathematical simulation and modeling are carried out using standard software packages such as Matlab.
