@article{Byrd2020LeveragingTS, title={Leveraging the Super Instruction Architecture to Develop Massively Parallel Computational and Environmental Chemistry Applications}, author={Jason N. Byrd and Stephen E. Masters and Douglas S. Burns and Victor F. Lotrich and Beverly A. Sanders}, journal={arXiv: Chemical Physics}, year={2020} }

The task of developing high performing parallel software must be made easier and more cost effective in order to fully exploit existing and emerging large scale computer systems for the advancement of science. The Super Instruction Architecture is a parallel programming platform geared towards applications that need to manage large amounts of data stored in potentially sparse multidimensional arrays during calculations. The SIA platform was originally designed for the Quantum Chemistry software…
