Hey Aaron, Supercomputers play an important role in the field of Computational Science, and are used for a wide range of computationally intensive tasks in various fields, including Quantum Mechanics, Weather Forecasting, Climate Research, Molecular Modelling (computing the structures and properties of chemical compounds, polymers, and crystals), and Physical Simulations (such as simulations of the early moments of the universe, airplane and spacecraft aerodynamics, the detonation of Nuclear weapons and Nuclear Fusion). They also plays an essential role in the field of Cryptanalysis.

These are some of the features regarding Supercomputer:-

  • They have more than 1 CPU (Central Processing Unit) which contains instructions so that it can interpret instructions and execute arithmetic and logical operations.
  •  The supercomputer can support extremely high computation speed of CPUs.
  • They can operate on pairs of lists of numbers instead of pairs of numbers.
  • They were used initially in applications related to national security, nuclear weapon design, and cryptography. But nowadays they are also employed by the aerospace, automotive and petroleum industries.
