Snookered: Harmonization, a Test of Diplomacy

May 31, 2005 8:00 pm | by Randy C. Hice | Blogs | Comments

Notes from the road… Randy C. Hice I'm on a train somewhere in Switzerland, nearing the Italian border. The Alps are screaming past with intricate matrices of dormant vineyards covering the foothills. I'm daydreaming of how many people on this train are listening to something from the group War (City Country City) on an iPod. None likely. Statistically, probably no one else in Switzerland or Italy is listening to Lee Oskar

eScience: Changing the Face of HPC

May 31, 2005 8:00 pm | by Johannes Gehrke and Dave Lifka | Articles | Comments

New world of high performance computing enables more people to solve much more complex problems Johannes Gehrke and Dave Lifka Imagine, for a moment, that you are a computational biologist and want to ask a question like, "Show me all the genes that are similar to nitric oxide synthetase." It turns out this can be a pretty tricky question. If you are interested in proteins, you would have to search the NR database at NCBI instead. Now imagine typing that question into Google.com

Linux Clusters Evolve to Provide Affordable Compute-intensive Analysis

May 31, 2005 8:00 pm | by Marco Annaratone | Articles | Comments

A historical perspective on the development of commercial platforms for high performance scientific computing Marco Annaratone Technical teams within a variety of industries were among the first to discover the advantages of high performance computing with Linux clusters. Many engineering simulations are too compute-intensive for PCs and workstations, and require large-scale mainframes or supercomputers for them to be carried out in a reasonable amount of time

Hubble's 15 years of celestial discovery Jennifer Miller, Managing Editor Curiosity is simple human nature. It's a deep-seated compulsion, an instinct if you will, to step out of the ordinary and explore, study and discover our surroundings. Can you imagine a world without the not-so-simple theories and findings of Galileo, Columbus, Einstein or Newton? Neither can I

Obtaining realistic measurements of high performance computing systems Nathan Wichmann Here's a hypothetical: Imagine you have to buy a new car, sight unseen. Would you base your decision solely on horsepower? Of course not. You'd want to compare several other factors, such as performance, ride handling, safety rating and fuel system. Even more critical would be choosing the right car
