Reference brains are indispensable tools in human brain mapping, enabling integration of multimodal data into an anatomically realistic standard space. Available reference brains, however, are restricted to the macroscopic scale and do not provide information on the functionally important microscopic dimension. We created an ultrahigh-resolution(More)
We describe portable software to simulate universal quantum computers on massive parallel computers. We illustrate the use of the simulation software by running various quantum algorithms on different computer architectures, such as a IBM BlueGene/L, a IBM Regatta p690+, a Hitachi SR11000/J1, a Cray X1E, a SGI Altix 3700 and clusters of PCs running Windows(More)
The UNICORE Grid-technology provides a seamless, secure and intuitive access to distributed Grid resources. In this paper we present the recent evolution from project results to production Grids. At the beginning UNICORE was developed as a prototype software in two projects funded by the German research ministry (BMBF). Over the following years, in various(More)
The Human Brain Project (HBP) is a candidate project in the European Union’s FET Flagship Program, funded by the ICT Program in the Seventh Framework Program. The project will develop a new integrated strategy for understanding the human brain and a novel research platform that will integrate all the data and knowledge we can acquire about the structure and(More)
When processor clock speeds flatlined in 2004, after more than 15 years of exponential increases, the computational science community lost the key to the automatic performance improvements its applications had traditionally enjoyed. Subsequent developments in processor and system design — hundreds of thousands of nodes, millions of cores, reduced bandwidth(More)

In the last couple of years, many e-Science infrastructures have begun to offer production services to eScientists with an increasing number of applications that require access to different kinds of computational resources. Within Europe two rather different multi-national e-Science infrastructures evolved over time namely Distributed European(More)
