This book presents the state-of-the-art in modelling and simulation on supercomputers. Leading German researchers present results achieved on systems of the High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) for the year 2005. The reports cover all ...
fields of computational science and engineering, ranging from CFD via computational physics and chemistry to computer science. Special emphasis is given to industrially relevant applications. Presenting results for both vector-systems and micro-processor based systems, the book allows to compare performance levels and usability of various architectures. In the light of recent discussions about systems like BlueGene versus the Earth-Simulator, this book may serve as a guide book for further discussion. The book covers the main methods in high performance computing. Its outstanding results in achieving highest performance for production codes are of particular interest for both the scientist and the engineer. The book comes with a wealth of coloured illustrations and tables of results.
