SuperComputer in India:
A Supercomputer is focused on performing tasks involving intense numerical calculations such as weather forecasting, fluid dynamics, nuclear simulations, theoretical astrophysics, and complex scientific computations.
Supercomputer program was started in India in 1980’s. PARAM 8000 is the first Super Computer in India. It was developed by Centre for Development of Advanced Computing
India has some of the top supercomputers in the world. We use supercomputers to conduct various scientific research, make meteorological predictions, for aerodynamic modelling, bioinformatics, and also simulating nuclear missile tests.
