    Computerized image processing is crucial for the large arrays of radio telescopes that are advancing astronomy. A new project will help relieve the computational bottleneck that hinders this field. The National Science Foundation (NSF) has funded a 5-year Grand Challenge High-Performance Computing and Communications project to (a) allow astronomers to use upgraded NSF supercomputers; (b) develop n...

    Distributed computation, probabilistic indexing and hashing techniques combine to create a novel approach to processing very large biological-sequence databases. Other data-intensive tasks could also benefit. Our indexing-based approach enables fast similarity searching through a large database of strings. Thanks to a redundant table-lookup scheme, recovering database items that match a test seque... View full abstract»

    We can now solve real-life problems in electromagnetics at all levels of complexity. Several popular algorithms are available to deal with the transient-scattering problem. They all solve either differential or integral equations in one form or another. No one method is best in all situations. Since only differential or integral equations are involved in the final solution, the methods described i... View full abstract»

    When ecosystems are fragmented into patches, the whole can be worth less than the sum of its parts. Parallel methods can greatly speed up statistical analysis of clusters, in landscape ecology or other fields. The term 'landscape ecology' refers to the analysis of patterns and heterogeneity in natural landscapes and ecosystems. Computer modeling is used in landscape ecology applications to assess ...

    During the early 1960s, scientists began to envision problem-solving computing environments not only powerful enough to solve complex problems but also able to interact with users on human terms. While many tried to create PSEs over the next few years, by the early 1970s they had abandoned almost all of these attempts. Technology could not yet support PSEs in computational science. But the dream o... View full abstract»
