supercomputers

  • Dona Crawford, Associate Director for Computation at NNSA’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), announced her retirement last week after 15 years of leading Livermore’s Computation
  • Two NNSA supercomputers—Trinity and Sequoia—are among the top six systems in the world, according to the 46th edition of the twice-yearly TOP500 list of the most powerful supercomputers released
  • Some of the world’s fastest supercomputers are among ASC’s accomplishments in advanced computing. However, it is not all about speed. Each new system is engineered to bring certain capabilities to
  • The Advanced Technology Development and Mitigation (ATDM) subprogram addresses the technological disruptions resulting from the evolution of HPC to radically different and more complex architectures
  • Los Alamos National Laboratory recently installed a new high-performance computer system, called Wolf, which will be used for unclassified research. Wolf will help modernize mid-tier resources
  • This sub-program provides both necessary physical facility and operational support for reliable, cross-lab production computing and storage environments as well as a suite of user services for
  • The mission of this national sub-program is to build integrated, balanced, and scalable computational capabilities to meet the predictive simulation requirements of NNSA. This sub-program strives to
  • Verification and Validation (V&V) provides assurance that the models in the codes produce mathematically correct answers and that the answers reflect physical reality. The V&V subprogram
  • Models are mathematical equations and tables that describe physical entities and processes; and are the vehicle by which new scientific understanding is written into the integrated codes. This
  • Integrated codes contain the mathematical descriptions of the physical processes relating to nuclear weapon systems and describe what the nation knows about how nuclear weapons function. This
