The Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences (CIMS) is NYU's center for research and advanced training in Mathematics and Computer Science. At Courant, education and research are closely intertwined, and highly dependent upon computing. CIMS has a large network of Solaris and Linux-based servers and workstations, as well as Apples and PCs running Windows, which are all maintained by a full-time systems staff.

Every desk within the Institute is equipped with a Linux workstation, Windows PC, or Mac. There are also convenient general purpose computer labs for use by students and researchers, and a variety of computing resources, ranging from single processor systems used for student assignments to linux clusters and a number of multiprocessor shared-memory systems used for research. All of these computing resources can be accessed either on-site or remotely via the network.
