Department Servers

The Economics Department operates a number of servers.  All of them run Ox, Octave, and R. Many of them run Matlab and Stata, and several run Maple. All machines have up-to-date versions of TeX, along with the Fortran compilers g77 and gfortran, the C/C++ compiler gcc, All the machines share the same userids and home directories. A file created on one of them is available on all of them. Accounts on all servers can be obtained from Mark Babcock.

Compute Canada and High Performance Computing

Compute Canada

Compute Canada is a national platform for high performance computing. 

All faculty members and their student advisees can create Compute Canada accounts and access one or more of the national clusters.  All Compute Canada facilities must provide a share of their capacity for free to researchers in Canada.

Faculty members with research funding can also pay for enhanced services or install purchased hardware in Compute Canada to be managed by their staff and available to other researchers when otherwise idle.

CAC

The Centre for Advanced Computing at Queen's is not part of Compute Canada.  It typically charges researchers to access to its HPC resources.
