China Still Has the Fastest Supercomputer, but the U.S. Still Rules

Computerworld

Although China has the world's most powerful supercomputer, which is capable of speeds of up to 33.86 petaflops per second, the United States produces more supercomputers than any other country, according to the latest Top500 supercomputer list. IDC analyst Steve Conway estimates about 90 percent of the systems on the Top500 ranking are manufactured by U.S. vendors, including 65 of the 76 Chinese systems on the most recent list. Still, U.S. dominance in supercomputer production is by no means assured, given intensifying global competition. The U.S. account...

HPC UNIVERSITY BI-WEEKLY CHALLENGE – Bouncing Particles

SUMMARY:
This problem challenges you to create a program in C or Fortran that simulates the described phenomenon.

QUESTION:
Particles in a 2-D environment move in single directions and bounce off walls and each other. Particles move diagonally (Northeast, Southeast, Northwest, or Southwest), one square per time step, with no change in velocity. 20 particles are initially placed in an environment in random positions, moving in random initial directions (Northeast, Southeast, Northwest, or Southwest). The particles move for 5 time steps, and the environment is 1...

XSEDE and Blue Waters Go Supernova

If you were to go back far enough into the Earth’s cosmic ancestry, you might be surprised to find it all started with a supernova explosion. These explosive cosmic events are like laboratories in space, generating elements that enable the creation of life later on; in fact, most of what makes up the Earth, including us humans, evolved from these fundamental elements. This is why simulating the process of a star going supernova is so important—it could potentially be the key to unlocking some of the bigger mysteries of how we came to be in the universe.
