Technical Reports


The Computational Science Investigations(CSI) Technical Reports series was started as a convenient grouping and location for a series of reports in the general area of computational science. The list was started at The University of Hull, in July 2014. The list follows on in a direct sense from the earlier CSSG series at Massey University in New Zealand and also from the DHPC technical note list from The University of Adelaide in Australia.

The links below point to abstracts, which in most cases link on to PDF versions of the notes. If the note has been published elsewhere, citation information is also included. Citation information for all these online reports is also given in the BiBTeX file: csi.bib.

In some cases, where material remains commercially sensitive or is not finalized, only the abstract is provided. Contact Ken Hawick in case of queries.
