Examples of Computational Science at Work (Invited Minisymposium)

Over the coming decade, high performance computers will surpass sustained teraflops performance. This unheralded increase in computing capability is already driving the growth in computation and simulation as major forces in science and engineering at laboratories, universities, and industry. In academia and the national laboratories, computation has evolved as a third approach to science, joining the traditional methodologies of theory and experiment. Likewise, in industry, high-performance computing will be key to rapid design of highly effective processes and products and, hence, to economic competitiveness and leadership.
