  • This paper discusses the following topics: Parallel computing at ORNL; massive parallelization of fluid plasma turbulence computations; a parallel implementation of the reduced MHD equations; massively parallel Fokker-Planck calculations; massively parallel Fokker-Planck calculations via Monte-Carlo; gyrokinetic calculations on the connection machine; a parallel 2D electrostatic PIC code for the Mark III Hypercube; particle simulation on the NCUBE concurrent multiprocessor; gyrokinetic simulations on massively parallel computers; and, numerical study of collisionless magnetic reconnection on the connection machine.
  • Progress in developing systolic, vector and parallel architectures for accelerating the processing speeds of computers used for large computational tasks are described. Attempts are made to assess promising directions being followed in hardware, software and implementation techniques, most dealing with the exploitation of parallelism. Consideration is given to efforts to establish a common parallel processing language such as level-2 BLAS and to use a generalized form of LISP on supercomputers. Work on the MIDAS, MACH-1 and HEP multiprocessor systems to evaluate parallel processing algorithms which take advantage of multiple processors while compensating for limitations on the processor speed and formore » the potential for data routing conflicts is detailed. The application of parallel processing capabilities to, e.g., fluid dynamics, statistical and nuclear physics problems is discussed.« less
  • Radiation in participating media is an important transport mechanism in many physical systems. The simulation of complex radiative transfer has not effectively exploited high-performance computing capabilities. In response to this need, a workshop attended by members active in the high-performance computing community, members active in the radiative transfer community, and members from closely related fields was held to identify how high-performance computing can be used effectively to solve the transport equation and advance the state-of-the-art in simulating radiative heat transfer. This workshop was held on March 29-30, 1994 in Albuquerque, New Mexico and was conducted by Sandia National Laboratories. Themore » objectives of this workshop were to provide a vehicle to stimulate interest and new research directions within the two communities to exploit the advantages of high-performance computing for solving complex radiative heat transfer problems that are otherwise intractable.« less
  • Recent revolutions in computer hardware and software technologies have paved the way for the large-scale deployment of clusters of commodity computers to address problems heretofore the domain of tightly coupled SMP processors. Near term projects within High Energy Physics and other computing communities will deploy clusters of scale 1000s of processors and be used by 100s to 1000s of independent users. This will expand the reach in both dimensions by an order of magnitude from the current successful production facilities. The goals of this workshop were: (1) to determine what tools exist which can scale up to the cluster sizesmore » foreseen for the next generation of HENP experiments (several thousand nodes) and by implication to identify areas where some investment of money or effort is likely to be needed. (2) To compare and record experimences gained with such tools. (3) To produce a practical guide to all stages of planning, installing, building and operating a large computing cluster in HENP. (4) To identify and connect groups with similar interest within HENP and the larger clustering community.« less
