Series ended Lecture
High Performance Computing, Computational Grid, and Numerical Libraries

About the series

Lecturer: Jack Dongarra, University Distinguished Professor, the University of Tennessee

In this talk we will look at how High Performance computing has changed over the last 10-year and look toward the future in terms of trends. In addition, we advocate the Computational Grids' to support large-scale applications. These must provide transparent access to the complex mix of resources - computational, networking, and storage - that can be provided through aggregation of resources. We will look at how numerical library software can be run in an adaptive fashion to take advantage of available resources.
