Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The exploratorium described here consists of hyperlinked tutorials and quizzes on high performance computational concepts and computational modules implemented on different computer systems: desktop work-stations, vector and parallel supercomputers. The exploratorium provides a highly interactive environment in which students can experiment with computational modules and visually compare algorithms, numerical techniques, performance and implementation related issues. Such a hands-on simulation and experimentation based learning will enable students to gain a deeper understanding of advanced concepts. The world wide web based exploratorium fosters the easy development of instructional material from research software.
