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)

This manuscript has been read and accepted for the Graduate Faculty in Music to satisfy the dissertation requirement for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. 1 argues that suspending intelligibility stimulates the audience to imagine alternative meanings and ways the music might go, in an orientation that is politically desirable. Synthesizing theorizations(More)
Computing Technology Changes the Way in Which We do Computational Chemistry. Abstract 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(More)
