1. COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCE @ BROOKHAVEN
Computational Science is an integral component-of Brookhaven's multi science mission, and is a
reflection of the increased role of computation across all of science.
Brookhaven currently has major efforts in data storage and analysis for the Relativistic Heavy Ion
Collider (RHIC) and the ATLAS detectorat:CERN, and in quantum chromodynamics. The
Laboratory-is host:for the QCDOC machines (quantum chromodynamics on a chip), 10 teraflop/s
computers which boast 12,288 processors each.. There are two here, one for the Riken/BNL
Research Center and the other supported by DOE for the US Lattice Gauge Communityrand other
A 100 teraflop/s supercomputer will be installed at Brookhaven in the coming year, managed jointly
by Brookhaven: and Stony:Brook, and funded by a grant from New York State. This machine will
be used for computational science across Brookhaven's entire:research program, and also by
researchers at Stony Brook and across New York State. With Stony Brook; Brookhaven has
formed the New York Centerfor ComputationalScience (NYCCS):as a focal point for
interdisciplinary -computational science, which is closely. linked to Brookhaven's Computational
Science Center (CSC).
The CSC has established a strong program in computational science, with an emphasis on
nanoscale electronic structure and molecular: dynamics, accelerator design; computational fluid
dynamics; medical imaging, parallel.computing and numerical algorithms. We have been an active
participant in DOE's SciDAC program (Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing).. We are
also planning a major expansion in computational biology in keeping with Laboratory initiatives.
Additional laboratory initiatives with a dependence on a high level of computation include the
development of hydrodynamics models forthe.interpretation of:RHIC data, computational models
for the atmospheric transport of aerosols,,and:models for combustion and for energy utilization.
The CSC was formed to bring together researchers in these areas and toprovide a focal point for
the development of computational expertise at the Laboratory. These efforts will connect to and
support-the Department of Energy's long range plans to provide Leadership class computing to
researchers throughout the Nation.
Recruitment for six new positions at.Stony.Brook to strengthen its computational' science programs
is underway. We expect some of these to be held jointly with BNL.
Here’s what’s next.
