ALCF's Victor Anisimov co-authors book on fast multipole method

A new book, “Introduction to the Fast Multipole Method," co-written by ALCF computational scientist Victor Anisimov provides a user-friendly exploration of the theory and computer implementation of FMM, an algorithm that enables simulations in computational biophysics, chemistry, and materials science to deal with larger and more realistic models. Developed in 1987, FMM was recognized by Computing in Science and Engineering as one of the Top 10 Algorithms of the 20th century.

Anisimov is currently part of an effort to implement FMM into the NWChemEx molecular modeling package to improve its performance on Aurora and DOE's other upcoming exascale systems.

Stanford-led team uses ALCF supercomputers to advance aircraft design

A new article from ASCR Discovery highlights how a research team led by Parviz Moin of Stanford University is using ALCF computing resources to determine whether large-eddy simulation of commercial aircraft is both cost effective and sufficiently accurate to help engineers design more efficient aircraft. Their early results are promising.

"The future of aviation is bright and needs more development,” Moin says. “I think with time – and hopefully it won’t take too long – aerospace engineers will start to see the advantage of these high-fidelity computations in engineering analysis and design.”
