Large-Scale Scientific Computing in Physics and Engineering

In this minisymposium we will highlight four examples of physics and engineering computations on parallel architectures. The topics range from vortex dynamics in superconducting media to polymerization and fluid flow. The speakers are applied mathematicians who are actively involved in parallel computations in academic and government laboratories. They will discuss methods and parallel computing tools which have found applications in their respective areas of research and present new results.

The use of parallel computers for large-scale numerical simulations is increasing. Many numerical methods and computational tools are being developed, which deserve to be highlighted from a user's perspective. The speakers in this minisymposium will illustrate how parallel computing is enabling research in four areas of physics and engineering.
