Mathematics Department Computational Resources

The Mathematics Department strives to provide faculty and graduate students with advanced computing resources to aid in their education and research. Computer support is available to assist in projects from conception through the proposal process to the final report. Please contact the computer support manager (fuz at math.ucsb.edu) for more information. Below is a listing of the principal departmental computing resources available for research and education.
