Next to the building complex of the Mathematical Institute (near the SLUB in Zelleschen Weg) was built on Informationsdienst Zentrum und fa r Hochleistungsrechnen (ZIH). The building is characteristic because the body’s water-cooled computer requires continuous removal of water vapor on the roof of the building. The supercomputer is one of a group of 100 computers in the world faster and can process 11.5 billion floating point operations per second. This infrastructure enables the research and progress on issues such as Grid computing, the programming methods, optimization methods and mathematical algorithms, and analyze biological processes. As a university, the ZIH is used also in education.
