    Large-volume sky surveys have accessed the Universe's vast temporal and spatial expanse via a remarkable set of measurements, and many more are sure to follow. To make new predictions for these cosmological observations and to properly interpret them, large-scale numerical simulation and modeling has become an essential tool. Here, the authors discuss Hardware/Hybrid Accelerated Cosmology Code (HA... View full abstract»

    We performed a direct numerical simulation (DNS) of high Reynolds number turbulent channel flow to expand our understanding of wall-bounded turbulence. The resolution requirements inherent to realistic turbulent flows necessitate leadership computing systems. Using Mira at Argonne Leadership Computing Facility, Argonne National Laboratory, we were able to achieve DNS at Re_tau = 5,200, and generat... View full abstract»

    The primary goal of the extreme-scale plasma turbulence studies described in this article is to gain new insights on confinement scaling in magnetic fusion systems by using powerful, world-class supercomputers to carry out simulations with unprecedented resolution and temporal duration. New insights have been gained on the key question of how the turbulent transport of thermal energy and particles... View full abstract»

    Advancement in high-performance computing allows us to calculate properties of increasingly complex materials with unprecedented accuracy. At the same time, to take full advantage of modern leadership-class supercomputers, the calculations need to scale well on hundreds of thousands of processing cores. We demonstrate such high scalability of our recently developed implementation of Ehrenfest non-... View full abstract»

    Biological processes are inherently complex and involve many unknown relationships and mechanisms at different scales. Despite many efforts, researchers still can't explain all of the observed phenomena and, if necessary, make any desirable changes in the dynamics. Recently, it has become apparent that a research opportunity lies in complementing the traditional, heuristic experimental approach wi... View full abstract»

    Military-related industries have developed many high-gravity aircraft, such as high-performance fighters and aerobatic aircrafts, which can maneuver beyond the acceleration tolerance limit of human beings. Gravity-induced loss of consciousness (GLOC) due to blood draining away from the brain is one of the main reasons for many high-gravity maneuvering aircraft accidents with many pilots losing the...
