We present timing and performance numbers for a short-range parallel molecular dynamics (MD) code, SPaSM, that has been rewritten for the heterogeneous Roadrunner supercomputer. Each Roadrunner compute node consists of two AMD Opteron dual-core microprocessors and four PowerXCell 8i enhanced Cell microprocessors, so that there are four MPI ranks per node,(More)
Dislocation dynamics (DD), a discrete dynamic simulation method in which dislocations are the fundamental entities, is a powerful tool for investigation of plasticity, deformation and fracture of materials at the micron length scale. However, severe computational difficulties arising from complex, long-range interactions between these curvilinear line(More)
Photography provides tangible and visceral mementos of important experiences. Recent research in content-aware image processing to automatically improve photos relies heavily on automatically identifying salient areas in images. While automatic saliency estimation has achieved estimable success, it will always face inherent challenges. Tracking the(More)
