Commercial Impact with Supercomputer Benchmarking
Our Particle Physics Theory group’s expertise in Beyond the Standard Model (BSM) physics involves particle physics simulations on supercomputers with bespoke code. Based on this work, we have realised the development and commercialisation of an open source tool, BSMBench, that enables benchmarking of supercomputer system performance. The unique property of the code is the capacity to vary computational and communication aspects simply by adjusting simple parameters of the theories it simulates. This makes it a powerful benchmarking tool for supercomputer systems.
