The Cray XC40 supercomputer and CS 400 cluster supercomputer feature the new Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v3 product family, formerly code named “Haswell." The supercomputer is available with the new DataWarp technology, which is an applications I/O accelerator that addresses the growing performance gap between compute resource and disk-based storage.

Space Molecule Leads to Life's Interstellar Origins

Hunting from a distance of 27,000 light years, astronomers have discovered an unusual carbon-based molecule – one with a branched structure – contained within a giant gas cloud in interstellar space. Like finding a molecular needle in a cosmic haystack, astronomers have detected radio waves emitted by isopropyl cyanide. The discovery suggests that the complex molecules needed for life may have their origins in interstellar space.

Mathematicians have introduced a new element of uncertainty into an equation used to describe the behavior of fluid flows. While being as certain as possible is generally the stock and trade of mathematics, the researchers hope this new formulation might ultimately lead to mathematical models that better reflect the inherent uncertainties of the natural world.

Researchers have developed a scaling law that predicts a human’s risk of brain injury, based on previous studies of blasts’ effects on animal brains. The method may help the military develop more protective helmets, as well as aid clinicians in diagnosing traumatic brain injury — often referred to as the “invisible wounds” of battle.

Putting the Squeeze on Quantum Information

September 26, 2014 12:56 pm | by Canadian Institute for Advanced Research | News | Comments

Researchers have shown that information stored in quantum bits can be exponentially compressed without losing information. The achievement is an important proof of principle, and could be useful for efficient quantum communications and information storage. Compression is vital for modern digital communication. It helps movies to stream quickly over the Internet and millions of telephone calls to bounce off of satellites.
