    Excellent computer simulations are done for a purpose. The most valid purposes are to explore uncharted territory, to resolve a well-posed scientific or technical question, or to make a good design choice. Stand-alone modeling can serve the first purpose; the other two goals need a full integration of the modeling effort into a scientific or engineering program. Some excellent work, much of it rel...

    Over the past 25 years (1979-2004), the theoretical-particle physicists who practice lattice-gauge theory have become some of the most frequent users of supercomputing cycles. Although we've long known that atoms consist of electrons surrounding a nucleus made of nucleons (protons and neutrons), we've recently learned that at a deeper level, the nucleons themselves are composites. We can best expl... View full abstract»

  • More models of infection: It's epidemic

    Previously, we studied a model of an infection's spread through a hospital ward. The ward was small enough that we could track each patient individually, but when population size grows, this kind of model becomes impractical; accordingly, we turn our attention in this paper to models that study the population as a whole. As before, we divide the population into three groups: at day t, I(t) is the ... View full abstract»

  • The geometry of algebraic systems and their exact solving using Grobner bases

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):76 - 79
    Cited by:  Papers (6)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (488 KB)

    Although exact methods for solving general polynomial systems are incorporated into well-known computer algebra systems such as Derive, Maple, Mathematica, MuPad, and Reduce, only a small portion of the scientific community knows about them. This article introduces one such method - Grobner bases - for non-mathematicians in an intuitive way. Specifically, we show the analogies and differences betw... View full abstract»

  • From canonical to complex flows: Recent progress on monotonically integrated LES

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):36 - 49
    Cited by:  Papers (26)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1533 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Large-eddy simulation (LES) based on subgrid-scale modeling implicitly provided by the discretization algorithm has been the subject of considerable recent interest. In the monotonically integrated LES approach, flux-limiting schemes emulate the flow features in the high-wavenumber end of the inertial range region of turbulence. View full abstract»

  • Natural XML for data binding, processing, and persistence

    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (403 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The article explains what you need to do to incorporate XML directly into your computational science application. The exploration involves the use of a standard parser to automatically build object trees entirely from application-specific classes. This discussion very much focuses on object-oriented programming languages such as Java and Python, but it can work for non-object-oriented languages as... View full abstract»

    We presently are experiencing historically rapid advances in science, technology, and education driven by a dramatic increase in computer use and power. In the past, educators were content to have undergraduates view scientific computation as black boxes (an abstraction of a device in which only its externally visible behavior is considered, not its implementation) and have them wait for graduate ...

    One of the biggest news stories at the close of 2003 touched on the biggest mystery facing biochemistry today. Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), or mad cow disease, is one of many incurable diseases caused by malformed proteins in the body. The discovery of a BSE-infected dairy cow in Washington state just before Christmas caused widespread concern in the United States, and with good reason:... View full abstract»

    The author considers software development methodologies, emphasizing those relevant to large-scale scientific computing. Many projects aim to improve the scientific computing environment, including scientific code preparation, execution, and debugging. But a scientific programming environment must address some of the key features that differentiate it from commodity or business computing for which... View full abstract»

    Space-environment simulations, particularly those involving space plasma, present significant computational challenges. Global computational models based on magnetohydrodynamics equations are essential to understanding the solar system's plasma phenomena, including the large-scale solar corona, the solar wind's interaction with planetary magnetospheres, comets, and interstellar medium, and the ini...
