    The authors describe their work on the massively parallel finite-element computation of compressible and incompressible flows with the CM-200 and CM-5 Connection Machines. Their computations are based on implicit methods, and their parallel implementations are based on the assumption that the mesh is unstructured. Computations for flow problems involving moving boundaries and interfaces are achiev... View full abstract»

    Examples of scientific visualization techniques used for the interactive exploration of very large data sets from supercomputer simulations of fluid flow are presented. Interactive rendering of images from simulations of grids of 2 million or more computational zones are required to drive high-end graphics workstations to their limits with 2-D data. The author presents one such image and discusses... View full abstract»

    The computational challenges of producing realistic biomedical simulations are reviewed. Techniques for applying classical mechanics simulation methods to proteins and ways to solve Newton's equations are discussed. Two recent applications of these methods are examined. The first considers the rate at which molecular oxygen binds to myoglobin, an oxygen-storage protein found in muscle. The second ... View full abstract»

    The author suggests that, due to the trends of unobtrusive technology and more intrusive information, the next phase of computing technology will develop nonlinearly. He states that, in the long run, the personal computer and the workstation will become practically obsolete because computing access will be everywhere: in the walls, on your wrist, and in `scrap' computers (i.e., like scrap paper) l...
