Scientists of the HLRS, Albert-Ludwig-Universität Freiburg, and the Technische Universität Dresden published a new book: High Performance Computing in Science and Engineering ’16. The book covers all fields of computational science and engineering ranging from computational fluid dynamics to computational physics and from chemistry to computer science with a special emphasis on industrially relevant applications. The basis for the report were the latest advances in this field discussed at the 19th Results and Review Workshop of the HLRS in October 2016 in Stuttgart, Germany. Presenting findings of one of Europe’s leading systems, this volume treats a wide variety of applications that deliver a high level of sustained performance.
The conference proceeding covers the main methods in High Performance Computing. Its outstanding results in achieving the best performance for production codes are of particular interest for both scientists and engineers.
