A recent online tutorial set participation records for a trio of UT science-related centers.
UT’s role as a leader in computing advancements was affirmed again recently as a team of students captured second place at the Student Cluster Competition in New Orleans.
International Science Grid This Week , an international science publication, touted the Nautilus supercomputer, managed by National Institute for Computational Sciences, and other Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) resources used in research focused on competition in the financial and insurance industries. The researchers are using the supercomputing resources to consider information frictions which are
Inside HPC featured research happening at the National Institute for Computational Sciences. The researchers are using NICS supercomputing resources to study the complex economics of industrial organization and contract theory. While these two fields have largely been considered separately, the researchers are investigating these forces and their effect on quality of service in healthcare.
An international team of researchers used resources at UT’s National Institute for Computational Sciences to develop components that would serve as the basis for “Illustris,” the most ambitious simulation of galaxy formation ever done. Illustris allows one to journey back and see in high detail our universe twelve million years after the Big Bang and then watch the cosmos evolve over a period of 13.8 billion years.
