Researchers at Princeton needing compilers, math libraries, analysis and visualization software should use the services available through the Princeton Institute for Computational Science and Engineering (PICSciE).
Nobel (nobel.princeton.edu) is two Linux servers, Compton and Davisson. The Nobel cluster holds licensed scientific, math and engineering software at Princeton University.
- Users must register before accessing the Nobel cluster. Registration takes effect within 30 minutes.
- Make sure your Unix account is enabled.
- To run or install licensed software, SSH to nobel.princeton.edu. Commercially licensed software at Princeton is available in the /usr/licensed directory.
- See hardware available on the Nobel cluster for more information.

Arizona cluster (arizona.princeton.edu)
The Arizona servers should be used to read e-mail with Pine, edit files with vi, and publish web pages. There is no scientific, math, or engineering software on the Arizonas, and CPU usage of individual processes is limited. To enable your Unix account and learn how to connect to the Arizona servers, see: kb.princeton.edu/5216.
