Sustained Simulation Performance

This book series presents the state of the art in High Performance Computing on modern supercomputer architectures. It addresses trends in hardware and software development in general. The contributions cover a broad range of topics, from performance evaluations in context with power efficiency to Computational Fluid Dynamics and High Performance Data Analytics. In addition, they explore new topics like the use of High Performance Computers in the field of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Contributions are based on selected papers presented at the annual Workshop on Sustained Simulation Performance (WSSP), held at the High Performance Computing Center, University of Stuttgart, Germany and Tohoku University.

Simulieren und Entscheiden

Simulationen geben zunehmend Orientierung für die Entscheidungsfindung in Politik, Ökonomie, Ökologie oder Medizin. Hierzu sind zunächst Modelle zu bilden, wobei die Modellierungsentscheidungen einen großen Effekt auf die Simulationsergebnisse haben. Dieses Zusammenhangs nimmt sich der vorliegende Band an und durchleuchtet Computersimulationen im Kontext von Entscheidungen aus Sicht der Soziologie, Simulationswissenschaft und Philosophie. Dabei stehen drei Fragen im Mittelpunkt: Wie werden Entscheidungen modelliert oder simuliert? Welche metatheoretischen und methodischen Entscheidungen müssen simulierende WissenschaftlerInnen im Zuge der Simulationsstudie treffen? Wie werden organisationale oder politische Entscheidungen durch Modellierungen und Simulationen unterstützt?

The Science and Art of Simulation I

This series addresses computer simulations as a scientific activity and engineering artistry (in the sense of a technē). The first volume is devoted to three topics: 1. the art of exploring computer simulations; 2. the art of understanding computer simulations; and 3. the art of knowing through computer simulations.

Tools for High Performance Computing

This book series presents the proceedings of the annual International Parallel Tools Workshop, a forum to discuss the latest advances in parallel tools. High-performance computing plays an increasingly important role for numerical simulation and modeling in academic and industrial research. At the same time, using large-scale parallel systems efficiently is becoming more difficult. A number of tools addressing parallel program development and analysis has emerged from the high-performance computing community over the last decade, and what may have started as a collection of a small helper scripts has now matured into production-grade frameworks. Powerful user interfaces and an extensive body of documentation together create a user-friendly environment for parallel tools.
