ISSUE 3 SPRING 2007
|INTERVIEW: CRAY & IBM |
|Supercomputing and Industry |
Peter Ungaro, President and CEO of Cray Inc., and Rod Adkins, Vice President of IBM Systems and Technology, discuss with SciDAC Review the role industry will pay in the future of supercomputing.
|SCIDAC-2 AWARDS |
|SciDAC-2: The Next Phase of Discovery |
|With the September 2006 announcement of the SciDAC-2 projects, it is clear that the Department of Energy and the nation's scientific computing community are up to the task of taking scientific computing to the petascale. |
|Science-Driven Supercomputing |
As DOE's flagship center for unclassified supercomputing, the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is a world leader in accelerating scientific discovery through computation.
|Mentoring Scientists of the Future |
Dr. Nagiza Samatova and Christopher Symons of ORNL write about their experience mentoring local high school students who made important contributions to a DOE-funded project and won a top award at the 2006-7 Siemens Competition in Math, Science, and Technology.
|PROJECT FOCUS : CLIMATE SCIENCE |
|Developing Models for Predictive Climate Science |
|The Community Climate System Model results from a multi-agency collaboration designed to construct cutting-edge climate science simulation models for a broad research community. Researchers are currently preparing predictive climate simulations for the petascale computers of the near future. |
|PROJECT FOCUS: COMPUTATIONAL CHEMISTRY |
|Speed and Precision in Quantum Chemistry |
|MADNESS is a simulation framework powered by innovative mathematical tools and is capable of solving quantum chemical problems that are too complicated for conventional methods. It offers an unprecedented combination of guaranteed speed and precision, and will become even more powerful as versions are developed for use on petascale computers. |
|CLOSING NOTES |
|Preview and Acronyms |
A preview of Lattice Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), one of the projects to be featured in an upcoming issue. Also, a legend is provided to help readers navigate through the many acronyms commonly encountered in SciDAC Review.
