Computational Resources

Many of our calculations were and are being performed on cutting edge supercomputers, such as the Earth Simulator in Yokohama, Japan. This 40 TFlop massively parallel vector supercomputer was built at a nontrivial cost of 500 M$ and requires an annual maintenance fee of 50 M$. Substantial computational resources of typically several months CPU time on a large fraction of the vector processors have been made available by JAMSTEC and RIST in Japan for a collaborative effort to understand the stability of electronic nanostructured devices subject to electronic excitations and to study the mechanical stability of novel materials.
