...nuclear weapons program. It runs on the Los Alamos supercomputer
known as Pink, a 1,024-node (2,048 processor) LinuxBIOS/BProc "Science Appliance" running Clustermatic 3, the largest single-system image Linux cluster in the world. Pink's nodes have dual 2.4 GHz Intel Xeon processors (Pentium 4) with 2 gigabytes of...
Meeting the ethanol challenge: Scientists use supercomputer to target cellulose bottleneck
...too quickly to evaluate visually, but by using the supercomputer
simulations to break the throw down into a step-by-step process, the scientists can see the precise details of the role of velocity, trajectory, movement, and arm angle. To undertake the large-scale simulations, the researchers used the CHARMM (Chemi...
