AMSTERDAM, April 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Amsterdam's Anwar Osseyran (SURFsara) and Urbana-Champaign's Merle Giles (University of Illinois) along with 40 contributors from 11 countries supply computer engineers and researchers with a state-of-the-art supercomputing reference. This book from CRC Press also keeps policymakers and industrial decision-makers informed about the economic impact of these powerful technological investments.
The publication, Industrial Applications of High-Performance Computing: Best Global Practices, offers a global overview of high-performance computing (HPC) for industrial applications, along with a discussion of software challenges, business models, access models (e.g., cloud computing), public-private partnerships, simulation and modeling, visualization, big data analysis, and governmental and industrial influence.
"This new book gives a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the rapidly expanding field of the industrial use of supercomputers. It is just a pleasure reading through informative country reports and in-depth case studies contributed by leading researchers in the field."
-Jysoo Lee, Principal Researcher, Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information
"Science, and therefore supercomputing, finds its way into industry around the world, affecting our lives in ways that are simple (cleaner clothes, faster speedboats, and more spin on a seven-iron) and profound (fewer drug interactions, safer cars, and new energy sources). Altogether, industry consumes more than half of all high performance computing usage worldwide. This book tells that story."
-Addison Snell, CEO, Intersect360 Research
