Dec. 9 -- Wolfram Research today announced the release of Mathematica Player 7, a free download that allows anyone anywhere to interact with dynamic documents and applications using new Mathematica technology.
In the recently released Mathematica 7, Wolfram Research integrated over 500 new functions and 12 major application areas including image processing, parallel high-performance computing (HPC), new on-demand curated data, and other computational innovations. Mathematica Player 7 extends those advances to interactive publishing by letting users deploy dynamic Mathematica documents that run freely* on any compatible computer.
"Mathematica Player has become the platform of choice for interactive technical publishing, including being the engine for over 4000 Demonstrations, " says Conrad Wolfram, Director of Strategic and International Development at Wolfram Research. "Player 7 adds access to new capabilities of Mathematica 7, including applications that tap into weather and human genome data at runtime or utilize our new industrial-strength image processing functions."
Authoring with Mathematica and the Publish for Player web service couldn't be simpler: educators, researchers, and others upload their Mathematica notebooks or applications to the Publish for Player website and instantly get back Player-compatible files. That means that people can now share dynamic content across classrooms and workgroups and publish their work without any software barriers. Mere documents become robust applications -- virtually freestanding and cross-platform -- in seconds.
Interactive publishing with Mathematica means that homework, quizzes, presentations, books, and research no longer have to be static documents. Publish for Player makes it easy to include point-and-click results, animated 3D models, real-time data from the Web, and more--all powered by the built-in Mathematica engine.
The free Mathematica Player 7 software and more information about the Publish for Player process are available online.
Over 4000 freely downloadable Player applications, including interactive content created with Mathematica 7, are available through the highly popular Wolfram Demonstrations Project.
*Licensing restrictions apply for free use.

Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...
Although Horst Simon was named Deputy Director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, he maintains his strong ties to the scientific computing community as an editor of the TOP500 list and as an invited speaker at conferences.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
