8-Aug-2006 Jefferson Lab's newest cluster computer takes shape
Unlike a regular computer -- whose "brain" consists of one or perhaps two processors -- a cluster computer's brain can contain hundreds or even thousands of individual processors, called nodes -- all wired together. To solve a problem, the cluster splits the problem into parts, and each node computes its designated part and shares the result with other nodes to produce the final solution.
28-Mar-2006 PPPL developes internet-based simulation capabilities
Physicists at Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory are developing internet-based interfaces which will allow researchers to access powerful simulation tools used to interpret experimental data and predict plasma behavior in future experiments.
The Department of Energy's Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time.
