Download High Performance Computing in Science and Engineering, by Jan Treibig, Georg Hager, Gerhard Wellein (auth.), Siegfried PDF

By Jan Treibig, Georg Hager, Gerhard Wellein (auth.), Siegfried Wagner, Matthias Steinmetz, Arndt Bode, Markus Michael Müller (eds.)

The Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) and the Bavarian Competence community for Technical and Scienti?c excessive functionality Computing (KONWIHR) post within the current booklet result of numerical simulations facilitated by way of the excessive P- formance computing device process in Bavaria (HLRB II) in the final years. The papers have been awarded on the Fourth Joint HLRB and KONWIHR overview and - sult Workshop in Garching on eighth and ninth December 2009, and have been chosen from all development studies of tasks that use the HLRB II. just like the workshop years in the past, the vast majority of the contributed papers belong to the realm of computational ?uid dynamics (CFD), condensed subject physics, astrophysics, chemistry, computing device sciences and high-energy physics. We be aware a substantial bring up of the consumer c- munity in a few parts: in comparison to 2007, the variety of papers elevated from 6 to twelve in condensed subject physics and from 2 to five in high-energy physics. Bio s- ences contributed just one paper in 2007, yet 4 papers in 2009. this means that the world of software of supercomputers is constantly turning out to be and coming into new ?elds of study. The 12 months 2007 observed significant occasions of specific significance for the LRZ. First, after a considerable improve with dual-core processors the SGI Altix 4700 superc- puter reached a top functionality of greater than sixty two Tera?op/s. And moment, the n- pro?t association Gauss Centre for Supercomputing e. V. (GCS) was once based on April 13th.

Download Programmierung naturanaloger Verfahren: Soft Computing und by Jörn Schmidt PDF

By Jörn Schmidt

In diesem Buch geht es um die Programmiertechniken, die zur Implementation sog. naturanaloger Verfahren erforderlich sind. Dabei handelt es sich um Zellularautomaten, Boolesche Netze, Evolutionäre Algorithmen, Simulated Annealing, Fuzzy-Methoden und Neuronale Netze. Der Band ist wegen seiner Konzentration auf Programmiertechniken ein Ergänzungsband zu dem Buch „Modellierung komplexer Prozesse durch naturanaloge Verfahren“. Es werden keine speziellen Programmierkenntnisse vorausgesetzt, sondern nur die Kenntnis einer der heute üblichen Sprachen wie JAVA oder C#. Die Anleitungen für das Programmieren sind in einem Pseudocode geschrieben, der auch für Anfänger verständlich ist und keine bestimmte Sprache voraussetzt. Nach erfolgreicher Lektüre sind die Leser in der Lage, selbst die genannten Modelle zu programmieren.

Inhalt
Einleitung – Boolesche Netze und Zellularautomaten – Modellierung adaptiver Prozesse – Simulationen mit Fuzzy-Logik – Neuronale Netze – Hybride Systeme
