NIC symposium 2012. 25 years HLRZ/NIC. Proceedings

Abstract

Since 25 years the John von Neumann Institute for Computing (NIC), the former ''Hoechstleistungsrechenzentrum'', plays a pioneering role in supporting research in computational science at the fore-front, by giving large grants of computer time to carefully selected research projects. The scope of these projects ranges from fundamental aspects of physics, such as the physics of elementary particles and nuclear physics, astrophysics, statistical physics and physics of condensed matter, computational chemistry and life sciences, to more applied areas of research, such as the modelling of processes in the atmosphere, materials science, fluid dynamics applications in engineering, etc. Use of the supercomputer resources that the Juelich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) provides for these research projects. The present book, which appears in the framework of the biannual NIC Symposia series, continues a tradition started 10 years ago, to present selected highlights of this research to a broader audience. Due to space restrictions, only a small number of the research projects that are carried out at the NIC can be presented in this way. Projects that stand out as particularly excellent are nominated as ''John von Neumann Excellence Project'' by the review board. In 2010 this award was given to A. Muramatsu (Stuttgart) for his  More>>

The present book, which appears in the framework of the biannual NIC Symposia series, continues a tradition started 10 years ago, to present selected highlights of this research to a broader audience. Due to space restrictions, only a small number of the research projects that are carried out at the NIC can be presented in this way. Projects that stand out as particularly excellent are nominated as ''John von Neumann Excellence Project'' by the review board. In 2010 this award was given to A. Muramatsu (Stuttgart) for his project on ''Quantum Monte Carlo studies of strongly correlated systems''. In 2011, two such awards were given to C. Hoelbling (Wuppertal) for his project ''Computing B{sub K} with 2+1 flavours at the physical mass point'', and another one to W. Paul (Halle) for ''Long range correlations at polymer-solid interfaces''. The procedures adopted by the NIC to identify the scientifically best projects for the allocation of computer time are of the same character as those used by organisations founded more recently, such as (in Germany) the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS), an alliance of the three German national supercomputing centres in Juelich, Garching and Stuttgart, and (in Europe) the Partnership for High Performance Computing in Europe (PRACE). In fact, the successful experience of NIC has served as a role model for this joint European effort, which now is hosted by France, Italy and Spain in addition to Germany. Actually, by now 22 of the 27 member states of the EU have joined PRACE in order to profit from the advances that supercomputing offers for basic science and technology. In fact, in the last two years a significant fraction of the supercomputer resources at JSC have been given to PRACE, and have fertilised research on an even broader range of topics. The first PRACE projects have been finished since a couple of months, and very important results can be expected. The John von Neumann Institute for Computing operates on the basis of a cooperation agreement between three research centres of the Helmholtz association, namely Forschungszentrum Juelich, Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY) Hamburg and the Gesellschaft fuer Schwerionenforschung Darmstadt (GSI). A very important ingredient of this research is that these institutions sponsor NIC research groups, where specific knowhow on computer simulation techniques relevant for topical research at supercomputers is developed further. The present volume contains brief reports from these groups; at Juelich the NIC research group devoted to ''Computational Materials Physics'', headed by M. Mueser from the Universitaet des Saarlandes at Saarbruecken, has started its work on April 1st, 2011.}
