    We now have 20 years of data under our belt about the performance of supercomputers against at least a single floating-point benchmark from dense linear algebra. Until about 2004, a single model of parallel programming, bulk synchronous using the MPI model, was sufficient to permit translation into reasonable parallel programs for more complex applications. Starting in 2004, however, a confluence ... View full abstract»

    Exascale systems will present programmers with many challenges. The authors review the parallel programming models that are appropriate for such systems and the challenges that implementations of those models face in an exascale system. They also discuss the feasibility of using existing programming systems, thus preserving the investment in legacy applications, as well as the benefits and likelih... View full abstract»

    New high-performance computing system designs with steeply escalating processor and core counts, burgeoning heterogeneity and accelerators, and increasingly unpredictable memory access times call for one or more dramatically new programming paradigms. These new approaches must react and adapt quickly to unexpected contentions and delays, and they must provide the execution environment with suffici... View full abstract»

    As multiprocessor and multicore technology becomes prevalent, shared-memory architectures with 1,024 or more processing cores are becoming available for general-purpose applications. As an early operator of such a system, the Remote Data Analysis and Visualization (RDAV) center at the University of Tennessee observed a host of user applications needing to scale up their computation by running many...

    The hard-sphere fluid is a very commonly used mechanical or thermodynamic model in physics, chemistry and chemical engineering, with its equation of state being its most important thermodynamic property. In this work, we present the implementation of the computer program Maple for developing an algorithm for the derivation of different analytical expressions for both hard-sphere and hard-disk equa...

    Virtual screening is a key process used to identify the most suitable molecule combinations when developing a new drug. Molecule docking is a commonly used method to analyze molecule structures and requires computing large databases to identify possible affinities between molecules. The special-purpose, field-programmable gate array (FPGA)-based Janus supercomputer accelerates the virtual screenin... View full abstract»

    Radar technology is used extensively by NASA for remote sensing of the Earth and other planetary bodies. In this case study, we learn about different computational concepts for processing radar data. In particular, we learn how to correct a slanted radar image by projecting it on the surface that was sensed by a radar instrument. The Web extra contains a Matlab data format file, as mentioned in th... View full abstract»
