The Advanced Simulation and Computing Program

The Metropolis Fellowship in Computer and Computational Science was created under the auspices of the Los Alamos component of the Advanced Simulation and Computing Program.

The Advanced Simulation and Computing Program is a National Nuclear Security Administration tri-lab program (Los Alamos, Lawrence Livermore, and Sandia) tasked with ensuring the safety, security, and effectiveness of the nation's nuclear weapons stockpile.

The program was established in 1995 to shift its approach from test-based confidence to simulation-based confidence. Its mission is to analyze and predict the performance, safety, and reliability of nuclear weapons and certify their functionality. The tri-lab collaborators also work in partnership with computer manufacturers and in alliance with leading universities.
