    Software engineering has been fundamentally transformed by a collaborative development model. Facilitated by powerful tools, even a modest software project can benefit from a global virtual community of developers. The authors of this article propose that the collaborative techniques used in modern software development can also be applied to other fields, such as structural engineering. This requi...

    The sheer scale of high-resolution raw data generated by simulation has motivated nonconventional approaches for data exploration, referred to as immersive and in situ query processing. Another step toward supporting scientific progress is to enable data-driven hypothesis management and predictive analytics out of simulation results. The authors of this article present a synthesis method and tool ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (2651 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The authors present a large-scale, hybrid 3D model for simulating dynamics of cell colonies growing in and interacting with a variable environment. For this purpose, they extended an earlier mathematical and computational formulation of a cell colony model to incorporate the cellular environment modeled in a continuous manner. A mathematical description based on partial differential equations is f... View full abstract»

    Developing the capability to project how climate change will affect a particular region--any region--on Earth is a high-performance computing problem with enormous economic and health impacts. Techniques to resolve regional-scale features in global climate models are being developed and validated on leadership computing systems. In time, these regional-scale-resolving global climate models will ar... View full abstract»

    The authors describe the creation of a tridimensional fly-through animation across the largest map of galaxies to date. This project represented a challenge: creating a scientifically accurate representation of the galaxy distribution that was aesthetically pleasing. The animation shows almost half a million galaxies as the viewer travels through the vast intergalactic regions, giving a glimpse of... View full abstract»
