Turbulence Simulations Help Make Movie Magic

Aug 8, 2013 |

One could aptly say that Nils Thuerey’s experiences in computer modeling and simulation lean toward the dramatic: He and three colleagues won an Oscar for Technical Achievement in 2012 from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for developing an algorithm to create fast and controllable smoke simulations and explosions on film.

Research Described at XSEDE13 Promises Fast Analysis of Markets

Aug 7, 2013 |

Thanks to a number of high-performance computing resources in the NSF’s XSEDE network, research by investigators at Cornell University and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is profoundly changing how regulatory authorities and researchers monitor the major U.S. stock exchanges.

XSEDE Keynote: Democratizing Scientific Research

Aug 2, 2013 |

The path to a more inclusive science community has not been without challenges, a major one being the lack of effective communication between Natives and non-Natives at the researcher level, as well as society at large. That in turn sometimes discourages Native Americans from…

Steven Reiner Urges Scientists to Tell Their Stories

Aug 7, 2012 |

<img style=”float: left;” src=”http://media2.hpcwire.com/hpcwire/Steven_Reiner_XSEDE12_small.jpg” alt=”” width=”101″ height=”104″ />At the annual Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) conference in Chicago, journalist Steven Reiner talked about the crucial role scientists play in educating the public about their work. A lifelong journalist and Emmy-award winning producer, Reiner believes it is essential to our society that researchers explain what they do, how they do it, and why it is important. “Scientists have a responsibility to share the meaning and implications of their work,” he said.

Proving the Case for Climate Change with Hi-Res Models

Aug 2, 2012 |

<img style=”float: left;” src=”http://media2.hpcwire.com/hpcwire/Hot_Earth_small.jpg” alt=”” width=”98″ height=”98″ />Although serious scientists believe we’re past the point of debating the validity of climate change, the computer models that support this research are not perfect. Fortunately, the latest improvements to high-resolution climate simulations are not only improving the fidelity of the models, but are also deepening our understanding of climate dynamics, both qualitatively and quantitatively.
