The numerical method group develops algorithms and computer codes to simulate and study the transfer of heat and mass problems; problems of electromagnetic propagation in photonic systems or to optimise process in biological systems.The numerical tools that are developed can be applied to the simulation of complex physical problems (by means of Monte Carlo techniques) and to the resolution of ordinary differential equations and linear and nonlinear partial deferential equations using methods of discretization (finite differences and finite elements) and modal techniques.

Very often, the computational needs of these codes require supercomputing strategies in order to be executed (parallel codes / grid environments). This fact has increased the close collaboration with the Institute of Information Technology Applications at the UPV, and the participation of IUMPA in the HPC-Europe.
