For high-performance computing’s next wave, today’s humble operating system will have to assume new roles in synchronizing and coordinating tasks.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory-University of Tennessee team hopes to ease the path from vegetation to biofuel.
A University of Washington DOE early-career-awardee, with techniques called verified lifting and stencil programming, aims to boost speeds in climate models and other HPC simulations.
Data from experiments and advanced codes combine with supercomputing muscle to help explain a half-century-old mystery.
Developing practical fusion energy has been impeded for decades by high heat loss from magnetically confined plasmas. Researchers from MIT, University of California at San Diego and General Atomics captured the dynamics of plasma turbulence linked to heat loss on unprecedented scales. Pictured here is the inside of the Alcator C-Mod tokamak, the inset depicting plasma turbulence simulations that show long wavelength blobs coexisting with short wavelength streamers – small, finger-like structures that comprise the turbulence in the core of the experimental plasmas.View full highlight »
