Parallel GPGPU application takes aim at tumors

Protons, specifically proton beams, are increasingly being used to treat cancer with more precision. To plan for proton treatment, X-ray computed tomography (X-ray CT) is typically used to produce an image of the tumor site — a process that involves

Cracking the source of crackle in supersonic jet noise

The ASCR Leadership Computing Challenge projects that make up roughly 30% of the time awarded on ALCF supercomputers each year go to support “high-risk, high-payoff” simulations of interest to the DOE. Stanford’s Parviz Moin used his 60 million hour award

Renewed urgency in the race to exascale

At a special two-day symposium last month, Argonne invited back many of the visionaries who in some way contributed to the lab’s 30 years in advancing parallel computing and computational science. Most if not all of these individuals have made
