ORNL researchers, supercomputer have large roles in DOE projects

puter Science and Mathematics Division heads a team awarded 1 million processor hours on Jaguar to perform next-generation simulations in biology, and Fred Jaeger of the Fusion Energy Division was awarded 500,000 hours on Jaguar to investigate the way the ITER plasma can be heated using high-power radio frequency waves.

In all, 29 projects will be using ORNL's Cray machines. Most of the work will be performed on the Jaguar system. With a peak performance of 119 teraflops and 46 terabytes of memory, Jaguar is among the top 10 systems in the world, according to the Top500 list. Another 5 million-plus hours have been allocated to Phoenix, which is the most powerful vector computer in the United States. The system delivers a peak performance of 18.5 teraflops and is especially adept at running scientific codes.
