  • We present Global Futures (GF), an execution model extension to Global Arrays, which is based on a PGAS-compatible Active Message-based paradigm. We describe the design and implementation of Global Futures and illustrate its use in a computational chemistry application benchmark (Hartree-Fock matrix construction using the Self-Consistent Field method). Our results show how we used GF to increase the scalability of the Hartree-Fock matrix build to up to 6,144 cores of an Infiniband cluster. We also show how GF's multithreaded execution has comparable performance to the traditional process-based SPMD model.
  • A global energy, economics, environment (E{sup 3}) model has been adopted and modified with a simplified, but comprehensive and multi-regional, nuclear energy module. Using this model, consistent nuclear energy scenarios are constructed. A spectrum of future is examined at two levels in a hierarchy of scenario attributes in which drivers are either external or internal to nuclear energy. Impacts of a range of nuclear fuel-cycle scenarios are reflected back to the higher-level scenario attributes. An emphasis is placed on nuclear materials inventories (in magnitude, location, and form) and their contribution to the long-term sustainability of nuclear energy and the futuremore » competitiveness of both conventional and advanced nuclear reactors.« less

  • According to the U.S. Department of Energy and West Germany's Universitaet des Saarlandes, synthetic fuels from coal offer a cleaner, more manageable coal-based alternative to oil and gas energy supplies due to the environmental, transportation, and storage constraints related to the direct combustion of coal, although environmental and water constraints and uncertainty over coal-mining capacities complicate the decisions of potential synthetic-fuels sponsors. The continued availability of natural gas through the rest of the century will forestall the commercialization of high-Btu gasification systems, although low- and medium-Btu coal fuels will probably contribute 0.1-0.3 quadrillion Btu/yr by 2000.
