    apeNEXT is the latest in the APE collaboration's series of parallel computers for computationally intensive calculations such as quantum chromo dynamics on the lattice. The authors describe the computer architectural choices that have been shaped by almost two decades of collaboration activity. View full abstract»

    The goal of the Gravity Pipe (GRAPE) project is to accelerate astrophysical N-body simulations. Because almost all computing time is spent evaluating the gravitational force between particles, we can greatly accelerate many N-body simulations by developing a specialized hardware system for the force calculation.

    With Ianus, a next-generation field-programmable gate array (FPGA)-based machine, the authors hope to build a system that can fully exploit the performance potential of FPGA devices. A software platform that simplifies Ianus programming will extend its intended application range to a wide class of interesting and computationally demanding problems. View full abstract»

    In May 1997, Deep Blue became the first computer to defeat a reigning world chess champion in an official match. This article reexamines the special-purpose chess hardware that provided most of Deep Blue's computational power and explores design alternatives made possible by new technologies for similar tasks.

    Simulation is an important tool for understanding developmental mechanisms, but the technology is often too complex for biologists lacking higher computational skills. Using a tiered architecture, the developers of these problem-solving environment (PSE) prototypes ensure accessibility for users at all skill levels. View full abstract»

    PDEs occur in various engineering disciplines. In developing visualization strategies, we considered only problems involving a spatially independent variable x (or in cylindrical coordinates, r) and the temporal variable t, which is also an independent variable. Given that the solutions are functions of two variables - x (or r) and t - the solution's character is difficult for engineering students... View full abstract»

    We consider the situation, in which we're asked to work with a legacy code - one that has been in use for a while and now needs maintenance by someone other than its author. We use a Matlab function as an example. View full abstract»

    Although most of the ideas behind networking are relatively straightforward, several interesting technical and business decisions must be made as an ongoing part of the process. In this first installment of what I hope turns into a discussion about more advanced applications, the focus is on revealing the secrets in a typical home router/switch. (Here, a router has both switching and routing funct... View full abstract»

    This fifth segment of six discusses filters. Filtering implies a frequency-dependent selection process, passing, for example, frequencies within a certain range and rejecting those outside that range. I describe some essentials for creating frequency-dependent passbands and stopbands. I also briefly cover detrending and the cumulative periodogram. View full abstract»
