The future of mathematical communication. Final technical report

The future of mathematical communication. Final technical report

Date: December 31, 1994
Creator: Christy, J.
Description: One of the first fruits of cooperation with LBL was the use of the MBone (Multi-Cast Backbone) to broadcast the Conference on the Future of Mathematical Communication, held at MSRI November 30--December 3, 1994. Late last fall, MSRI brought together more than 150 mathematicians, librarians, software developers, representatives of scholarly societies, and both commercial and not-for-profit publishers to discuss the revolution in scholarly communication brought about by digital technology. The conference was funded by the Department of Energy, the National Science Foundation, and the Paul and Gabriella Rosenbaum Foundation. It focused on the impact of the technological revolution on mathematics, but necessarily included issues of a much wider scope. There were talks on electronic publishing, collaboration across the Internet, economic and intellectual property issues, and various new technologies which promise to carry the revolution forward. There were panel discussions of electronic documents in mathematics, the unique nature of electronic journals, technological tools, and the role of scholarly societies. There were focus groups on Developing Countries, K-12 Education, Libraries, and Te{sub X}. The meeting also embodied the promises of the revolution; it was multicast over the MBone channel of the Internet to hundreds of sites around the world and much information ...

Neutron- and Proton-Induced Nuclear Data Libraries to 150 MeV for Accelerator-Driven Applications

Neutron- and Proton-Induced Nuclear Data Libraries to 150 MeV for Accelerator-Driven Applications

Date: December 31, 1997
Creator: Young, P.G. & Chadwick, M.B.
Description: A program is underway at Los Alamos National Laboratory to develop nuclear data libraries for incident neutrons and protons to 150 MeV for accelerator-driven applications. These libraries will be used initially for design of an accelerator-based facility to produce tritium, including analysis of system performance, induced radiation doses, material activation, heating, damage, and shielding requirements. The libraries are based primarily on nuclear model calculations with the GNASH reaction theory code, including thorough benchmark of the model calculations against experimental data. All evaluations include specification of production cross sections for light particles, gamma rays, and heavy recoil particles, energy-angle correlated spectra for secondary light particles, and energy spectra for gamma rays and heavy recoil nuclei. The neutron evaluations are combined with ENDF/B-VI evaluations below 20 MeV. To date, neutron and proton evaluations have been completed or 2H, 12C, 16O, 27Al, 28,29,30Si, 40Ca, 54,56,57,58Fe, 182,183,184,186W, and 206,207,208Pb.

SCAMPI: A code package for cross-section processing

SCAMPI: A code package for cross-section processing

Date: April 1, 1996
Creator: Parks, C.V.; Petrie, L.M.; Bowman, S.M.; Broadhead, B.L.; Greene, N.M. & White, J.E.
Description: The SCAMPI code package consists of a set of SCALE and AMPX modules that have been assembled to facilitate user needs for preparation of problem-specific, multigroup cross-section libraries. The function of each module contained in the SCANTI code package is discussed, along with illustrations of their use in practical analyses. Ideas are presented for future work that can enable one-step processing from a fine-group, problem-independent library to a broad-group, problem-specific library ready for a shielding analysis.

Recent validation experience with multigroup cross-section libraries and scale

Recent validation experience with multigroup cross-section libraries and scale

Date: December 1, 1995
Creator: Bowman, S.M.; Wright, R.Q.; DeHart, M.D.; Parks, C.V. & Petrie, L.M.
Description: This paper will discuss the results obtained and lessons learned from an extensive validation of new ENDF/B-V and ENDF/B-VI multigroup cross-section libraries using analyses of critical experiments. The KENO V. a Monte Carlo code in version 4.3 of the SCALE computer code system was used to perform the critical benchmark calculations via the automated SCALE sequence CSAS25. The cross-section data were processed by the SCALE automated problem-dependent resonance-processing procedure included in this sequence. Prior to calling KENO V.a, CSAS25 accesses BONAMI to perform resonance self-shielding for nuclides with Bondarenko factors and NITAWL-II to process nuclides with resonance parameter data via the Nordheim Integral Treatment.

ARP: Automatic rapid processing for the generation of problem dependent SAS2H/ORIGEN-s cross section libraries

ARP: Automatic rapid processing for the generation of problem dependent SAS2H/ORIGEN-s cross section libraries

Date: April 1, 1998
Creator: Leal, L.C.; Hermann, O.W.; Bowman, S.M. & Parks, C.V.
Description: In this report, a methodology is described which serves as an alternative to the SAS2H path of the SCALE system to generate cross sections for point-depletion calculations with the ORIGEN-S code. ARP, Automatic Rapid Processing, is an algorithm that allows the generation of cross-section libraries suitable to the ORIGEN-S code by interpolation over pregenerated SAS2H libraries. The interpolations are carried out on the following variables: burnup, enrichment, and water density. The adequacy of the methodology is evaluated by comparing measured and computed spent fuel isotopic compositions for PWR and BWR systems.

Date: September 1, 1998
Creator: Anderson, E.; Atkinson, R.; Crego, C.; Slisz, J. & Tompson, S.
Description: As more library customers and staff throughout the world come to rely upon rapid electronic access to fulltext documents, there is increasing demand to also make older documents electronically accessible. Illinois State Library grant funds allowed us to purchase hardware and software necessary to answer this demand. We created a production system to scan our legacy documents, convert them into Portable Document Format (PDF), save them to a server for World Wide Web access, and write them to CD discs for distribution.

Description: Fermilab [HREF1] has been using World Wide Web [HREF2] (WWW) servers and browsers for the past several years. The purpose has been to allow information sharing within internationally dispersed teams of large collaborations of high energy physics experimenters and to make possible the easy dissemination of information by support groups who work with those collaborations. That is, the purpose has been in fact that for which was created at CERN [HREF3] beginning in March 1989. In the remainder of this paper, we describe the architecture of the Laboratory and Library servers, discuss the goals, the implications of those goals, the drivers of structure and content, and the effect of these factors on the architecture. Comparisons are made. The implications for Libraries within organizations are described. The application to large Libraries which begin to have multiple servers within their own organization (e.g., one in reference, one in cataloging, one in circulation) is made. The broader implications are discussed.

SuperLU users' guide

SuperLU users' guide

Date: November 1999
Creator: Demmel, James W.; Gilbert, John R. & Li, Xiaoye S.
Description: This document describes a collection of three related ANSI C subroutine libraries for solving sparse linear systems of equations AX = B: Here A is a square, nonsingular, n x n sparse matrix, and X and B are dense n x nrhs matrices, where nrhs is the number of right-hand sides and solution vectors. Matrix A need not be symmetric or definite; indeed, SuperLU is particularly appropriate for matrices with very unsymmetric structure. All three libraries use variations of Gaussian elimination optimized to take advantage both of sparsity and the computer architecture, in particular memory hierarchies (caches) and parallelism.

Electronic full-image reports at Los Alamos National Laboratory

Electronic full-image reports at Los Alamos National Laboratory

Date: March 2, 1998
Creator: Mosier, M.L.
Description: Los Alamos National Laboratory is a Department of Energy laboratory operated by the University of California. There are over 10,000 laboratory employees and contractors, many engaged in a variety of scientific and technical research. The laboratory covers forty-three square miles in northern New Mexico, one hundred miles from the nearest city which might reasonably be expected to meet the needs of the researchers. Because of the remoteness of the institution, the Research Library is a vital source for scientific and technical information. Due to the size of the institution, access to the physical library is difficult. These barriers, along with advances in technology, have led the Research Library to provide desktop access to all formal, unlimited Los Alamos reports. Older reports have been scanned and newer ones are received in electronic format. Currently over 10,000 reports are available in portable document format (PDF) via the World Wide Web (http://lib-www.lanl.gov). Researchers can search the library Web catalog (on a Z39.50 server), find a report, and click on a link to automatically bring up the report. This has been an extremely successful project as shown by the high usage, over 3,000 files retrieved per month in 1997 compared with around 100 for ...
