Newswise — Argonne scientists have been awarded projects in nuclear physics, high-energy physics, and Earth system model development through scientific discovery by the US Department of Energy’s Advanced Computing Program.
What are the basic building blocks of matter? How did the universe evolve? What is the future of Earth’s climate? These are questions that a high performance computer can answer.
U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Announces Funding for New Five-Year Projects in Nuclear Physics, High Energy Physics, and Earth System Model Development Under the Scientific Discovery Through Advanced Computing (SciDAC) Program Did. A scientist at DOE’s Argonne National Laboratory led two of his joint projects using advanced high-performance computers and was selected to participate in eight joint projects.
“The SciDAC program is an excellent example of the uniquely impactful research that can be done by interdisciplinary teams working together across scientific boundaries.” — Computational Sciences, Argonne Director, Salman Habib.
The program brings together many of America’s top researchers to develop new computational methods to tackle some of the most difficult scientific problems. The project will be carried out by a collaborative team led by the DOE National Laboratory.
“The fact that Argonne has been involved in nearly every SciDAC project is a testament to the expertise of our staff. It brings to the study of the universe, which is a big thing.” As Deputy Director of the Institute of Physical Sciences and Engineering.
The SciDAC Program in Nuclear Physics has funded three multi-institutional projects totaling $35 million. Argonne researchers will participate in all three projects and lead one. Argonne theoretical physicist Ian Croett, the leading “Femtoscale Imaging of Atomic Nuclei Using Exascale Platforms,” collaborated with partners at DOE’s Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility, Virginia Tech and State Universities. , develop a new framework for extracting 3D images of nucleons from nuclei. experimental data. Together they hope to find new discoveries about the properties of matter at very small length scales, the so-called femtoscale, equivalent to 1/1000 trillion of a meter.
The SciDAC Program in High Energy Physics has funded five projects totaling $30 million. One project is led by Argonne physicist and computational scientist Katrin Heitmann. (Other participating institutions are DOE’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Los Alamos National Laboratory, and Virginia Tech.) Enabling Space Discovery in the Exascale Era uses exascale supercomputers. to create models and simulations from new space exploration datasets. Study the origin and evolution of the universe. Combined with observations, model predictions are crucial in exploring new insights into dark matter and dark energy.
Two Argonne-led projects are pioneering research on DOE’s exascale supercomputers, including Aurora, a next-generation system being built at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility, a DOE Office of Science user facility in Argonne. support.
“The SciDAC program is an excellent example of the uniquely impactful research that can be done by interdisciplinary teams working together across scientific boundaries,” said Argonne University’s Department of Computational Sciences. said Salman Habib, director of “Much of the future of science depends on the success of efforts to combine cutting-edge computing with groundbreaking scientific ideas.”
