Applications of Massively Parallel Systems Volume 52, Number 1/2, 2008 Click to enlarge
RD 52-1/2
New approaches to applications, tools for parallelization, and architectures exemplified by the Blue Gene/L system have allowed massively parallel systems to address an increasingly broad range of applications. Topics for this diverse issue include molecular dynamics, geophysical imaging, drug discovery, quantum chromodynamics, nuclear fusion, neuron modeling, climate simulation, turbulence, and an introduction to the new Blue Gene/P architecture.
