Abstract

Applications for the fastest and largest supercomputers nowadays originate to a large extent from scientific computing – in particular, from numerical simulations of phenomena and processes in science and engineering. Examples can be found in many diverse areas, such as the computation of aerodynamic properties of vehicles or aircraft, the prediction of weather or climate phenomena, in molecular physics and chemistry, but also in astrophysics and geoscience.
