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.

Some Universities Crack Code in Drawing Women to Computer Science

 New York Times

At Carnegie Mellon University, 40 percent of incoming freshmen to the School of Computer Science are women, the largest group ever. At the University of Washington, another technology powerhouse, women earned 30 percent of computer science degrees this year. At Harvey Mudd College, 40 percent of computer science majors are women, and this year, women represented more than half of the engineering graduates for the first time. These examples provide a road map for how colleges can help produce a mo...
