    In 2014, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory began acquisition of Sierra, a pre-exascale system from IBM and Nvidia. It marks a significant shift in direction for LLNL by introducing the concept of heterogeneous computing via GPUs. LLNL's mission requires application teams to prepare for this paradigm shift. Thus, the Sierra procurement required a proposed Center of Excellence that would align ... View full abstract»

    Co-design between application developers and the vendors providing high-performance computing systems is essential to efficiently using current-generation HPC systems and shaping next-generation architectures. Application developers are faced with the challenge of effectively orchestrating many hardware threads and exploiting vector instructions, which can require code modifications. Will refactor...

    Modernizing SW4 for massively parallel time-domain simulations of earthquake ground motions in 3D earth models increases resolution and provides ground motion estimates for critical infrastructure risk evaluations. Simulations of ground motions from large (M ≥ 7.0) earthquakes require domains on the order of 100 to500 km and spatial granularity on the order of 1 to5 m resulting in hundreds ...

    This article presents software for a satellite position and attitude control system based on mathematical modeling. The software is developed using Matlab for conceptual design; an added benefit is that it shortens design time and decrease design costs. Providing interactive modules for different actuators with various configurations and control algorithms makes this toolbox suitable for analyzing... View full abstract»

    To efficiently perform multiscale analysis of high-resolution, global, multiple-dimensional datasets, the authors have deployed the parallel ensemble empirical mode decomposition (PEEMD) package by implementing three-level parallelism into the ensemble empirical mode decomposition (EMD), achieving a scaled performance of 5,000 cores. In this study, they discuss the implementation of the PEEMD and ... View full abstract»

    This article describes a pilot programming course in which high school students were introduced, through the visual programming language of live sequence charts (LSC), to a new paradigm termed scenario-based programming. The rationale underlying this course was teaching high school students a second, very different programming paradigm. Using LSC for this purpose has other advantages, such as expo...

    The conventional wavelet transform is widely used in image and signal processing, where a signal is decomposed into a combination of known signals. By analyzing the individual contributions, the behavior of the original signal can be inferred. In this article, the authors present an introductory overview of the extension of this theory into graphs domains. They review the graph Fourier transform a... View full abstract»
