    Wavelets were developed independently by mathematicians, quantum physicists, electrical engineers and geologists, but collaborations among these fields during the last decade have led to new and varied applications. What are wavelets, and why might they be useful to you? The fundamental idea behind wavelets is to analyze according to scale. Indeed, some researchers feel that using wavelets means a...

  • 3D simulation of deep-submicron devices. How impurity atoms affect conductance

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):30 - 37
    Cited by:  Papers (19)

    As electronic devices are scaled down to the 0.1-micron range and below, the location of individual impurity atoms begins to affect whether the gates that control current flow open and close properly. This 3D simulation hints at how the basic structure of matter might limit device size View full abstract»

    Using a data-parallel strategy to parallelize molecular dynamics programs makes it possible to simulate very large molecules on large numbers of processors. Applying on appropriate combination of data partitioning and iteration distribution algorithms not only optimizes communication overheads but also achieves good load balance, and hence good performance View full abstract»

    The primary objective of the Esprit project Europort2 is to increase awareness of and confidence in the use of parallel high-performance computing (HPC) in business and industry. To meet this objective, the program plans to port large serial third-party and in-house codes to parallel architectures within two years, so as to create a significant competitive impact. Europort is structured into two c... View full abstract»

    A general technique for describing phase boundaries is now being applied to problems in solidification. The power of the phase-field method suggests that, with improvements in algorithmic techniques and computational resources, it should be a method of choice for materials scientists who want to accurately simulate this process View full abstract»
