Supercomputing in Europe—1987
In recent years there has been a large increase in the number of supercomputers in Europe. We examine their distribution both by country and by manufacturer and also by the major application of the supercomputer sites. We discuss reasons for their acquisition and the main advantages of supercomputing as perceived by the installations themselves. Throughout, we compare our findings with a survey which we conducted in 1984 and highlight the major differences in the European supercomputing scene since that time.
