Earthquake Simulation Hits Petascale Milestone

Apr 15, 2014 |

German researchers are helping to push back the goalposts on large-scale simulation. Using the the IBM “SuperMUC” high performance computer at the Leibniz Supercomputing Center (LRZ), a cross-disciplinary team of computer scientists, mathematicians and geophysicists successfully scaled an earthquake simulation to more than one petaflop/s, i.e., one quadrillion floating point operations per second. The collaboration included participants Read more…
