Supercomputers can calculate how a molecule's atoms move, giving insights for astrophysics, fuel use, and more. To determine a molecule's rotational and vibrational energies, chemists collect data about the positions of its atoms in space. The data is a table of numbers. Without a more clever approach to calculating the positions, the largest supercomputers are overwhelmed by six-atom molecules, for which the table would contain hundreds of billions of rows and columns. Thanks to chemists at Brookhaven National Laboratory, supercomputers can now calculate vibrational energies for larger, floppy molecules without relying on approximations.

14:10 Arxiv.org CS Study of Raspberry Pi 2 Quad-core Cortex A7 CPU Cluster as a Mini Supercomputer. (arXiv:1612.07128v1 [cs.DC])

High performance computing (HPC) devices is no longer exclusive for academic, R&D, or military purposes. The use of HPC device such as supercomputer now growing rapidly as some new area arise such as big data, and computer simulation. It makes the use of supercomputer more inclusive. Todays supercomputer has a huge computing power, but requires an enormous amount of energy to operate. In contrast a single board computer (SBC) such as Raspberry Pi has minimum computing power, but require a small amount of energy to operate, and as a bonus it is small and cheap. This paper covers the result of utilizing many Raspberry Pi 2 SBCs, a quad-core Cortex A7 900 MHz, as a cluster to compensate its computing power. The high performance linpack (HPL) is used to benchmark the computing power, and a power meter with resolution 10mV / 10mA is used to measure the power consumption. The experiment shows that the increase of number of cores in every SBC member in a cluster is not giving significant

We expect that multiscale simulations will be one of the main high performance computing workloads in the exascale era. We propose multiscale computing patterns as a generic vehicle to realise load balanced, fault tolerant and energy aware high performance multiscale computing. Multiscale computing patterns should lead to a separation of concerns, whereby application developers can compose multiscale models and execute multiscale simulations, while pattern software realises optimized, fault tolerant and energy aware multiscale computing. We introduce three multiscale computing patterns, present an example of the extreme scaling pattern, and discuss our vision of how this may shape multiscale computing in the exascale era.
