Computational Science Education Project

"An introduction to High Performance Computing issues as a preparation for research and studies in computational science and computational engineering. The intended audience are students in science and engineering at the advanced undergraduate level and higher. Public domain software tutorials are of general interest." This on-line book, sponsored by the US DOE, is available from several locations. The principal server site is at ORNL where also a backup system is available. The Vanderbilt site is also among those updated most frequently. Of interest may also be the mirror site at Edinburgh University, UK.

Rapport från "K-12" programmet vid Supercomputing '96


Real computer scientists despise the idea of actual hardware. Hardware has limitations, software doesn't. It's a real shame that Turing machines are so poor at I/O.
