HPC Transforms: Three Examples of HPC as an Agent of Change


Scientific Computing

HPC has traditionally advanced research that depends on simulation and modeling by enabling calculations with finer grids, more variables and multiple interacting phenomena. From time to time, HPC transforms the way certain problems are solved or opens up completely new applications of computing...

Keys to Access: Argonne-INCREASE partnership opens doors to collaboration


Argonne National Laboratory

Scientific solutions to global issues increasingly rely on the powerful facilities, tools and expertise located on national laboratory campuses.

Researchers at historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and other minority-serving institutions (MSIs) may not have the same...

ASCI Turns 20; David Turek Offers IBM Retrospective


HPCWire

Twenty years ago President Bill Clinton announced that the United States would maintain its U.S. nuclear arsenal without nuclear explosive testing. The challenge, of course, was how to actually carry out such a daunting task. The instruments were the tremendously successful Stockpile Stewardship...

A New Calculation Holds Promise for New Physics


Scientific Computing

A team of theoretical high-energy physicists in the Fermilab Lattice and MILC Collaborations has published a new high-precision calculation that could significantly advance the indirect search for physics beyond the Standard Model (SM). The calculation applies to a particularly rare decay of the...
