Abstract

In November 2004, IBM's Blue Gene/L, developed for U.S. nuclear weapons research, was declared as the fastest supercomputer on the planet. Supercomputing speed is measured in teraflops: trilions of calculations per second. Supercomputing combines extremely fast hardware with soft software that can solve the most complex computational problems. Supercomputing has become a major contributor to the economic competitiveness of the U.S. automotive, aerospace, medical, and pharmaceutical industries.
