TeraGrid is a national-scale computational science facility supported through a partnership among thirteen institutions, with funding from the US National Science Foundation [1]. Initially created through a Major Research Equipment Facilities Construction (MREFC [2]) award in 2001, the TeraGrid facility began providing production computing, storage,(More)
There is considerable interest in achieving a 1000 fold increase in supercomputing power in the next decade, but the challenges are formidable. In this chapter, the authors discuss some of the driving science and security applications that require Exascale computing (a million, trillion operations per second). Key architectural challenges include power,(More)
Alternatives to conventional rigid fusion have been proposed for several conditions related to degenerative disc disease when nonoperative treatment has failed. Semirigid fixation, in the form of dynamic stabilization or PEEK rods, is expected to provide compression under loading as well as an intermediate level of stabilization. This study systematically(More)

In 2006 a cast-iron coffin was discovered in an unmarked burial plot in Lexington, Missouri. A multifaceted investigation was conducted to provide historical documentation and possible identification of the individual. The coffin is an early Fisk Patent Metallic Burial Case. Osteological analyses indicate that the skeletal remains belong to a 20 to 30 year(More)
Developments in Computational Quantum Chemistry have been driven by the developments in hardware and software technology. Quantum chemical applications use 30-40% of the computational resources available in National and Regional supercomputer centers, therefore, it is important to discuss in the SUPERCOMPUTING ’92 forum how new technological developments in(More)
