    Large, virtualized pools of computational resources raise the possibility of a new, advantageous computing paradigm for scientific research. To help achieve this, new tools make the cloud platform behave virtually like a local homogeneous computer cluster, giving users access to high-performance clusters without requiring them to purchase or maintain sophisticated hardware.

    Interpolating subdivision schemes let users adjust coordinates of a 3D object's initial vertices, generate new vertices, and replace the original mesh with more and smaller polygons to make the object's surface smoother. Two new schemes for triangular meshes extend and combine existing schemes to improve the process and its results. View full abstract»

    Grid-based simulation usually involves sequences of activities such as resource discovery, job submission, file transfer, analysis and simulation, and data harvesting. We can use service-oriented workflow to automate task coordination without direct human control, where each task and legacy scientific code can be presented as a Web service and thereby simplifying workflow development and maintenan...

    Let's face it: The printed journal format that has served the scientific research community satisfactorily for more than 200 years doesn't serve the computational sciences community well at all. The community should, instead, communicate and archive the results of its research endeavors through a venue that lets students and colleagues fully examine published computational results and critique the...
