Mathematical library
A collection of programs that perform common mathematical tasks associated with numerical computing.
 The Next-Generation Supercomputer (the "K computer")
Under the Ministry of Culture, Sports, Science and Technology's (MEXT) High Performance Computing Infrastructure initiative, Fujitsu has worked with RIKEN to develop a scalar parallel supercomputer. "K" is the nickname for the Next-Generation Supercomputer that was decided upon and announced by RIKEN in July 2010. "K" here draws upon the Japanese word "Kei" for 1016, representing the system's performance goal of 10 petaflops. In its original sense, "Kei" expresses a large gateway in Japanese, and it is hoped that the system will be a new gateway to computational science.
 Hybrid parallel programming model (MPI parallel + thread-parallel)
A method of programming parallel computers where message passing is used to communicate between nodes while multiple threads are used to achieve parallelism within a node.
