Together with a 128-processor computer cluster with parallel computing capability, these computer facilities can efficiently help staff and students to conduct research on big data analysis and applied mathematics.

 

While the Mathematics Laboratories are equipped with up-to-date PCs with various software, laser/color printers, projectors and audio visual facilities to support the teaching of mathematics and statistics, the Department has also installed 8 Bloomberg terminals to allow staff and students to obtain updated financial data via the renowned Bloomberg Financial Information System.
