High Performance Computing for Computational Science — by Rainald Löhner, Joseph D. Baum, Charles Charman, Daniele

By Rainald Löhner, Joseph D. Baum, Charles Charman, Daniele Pelessone (auth.), José M. L. M. Palma, A. Augusto Sousa, Jack Dongarra, Vicente Hernández (eds.)

The fifth variation of the VECPAR sequence of meetings marked a metamorphosis of the convention name. the whole convention name now reads VECPAR 2002 — fifth Int- nationwide convention on excessive functionality Computing for Computational S- ence. This re?ects extra thoroughly what has been the most emphasis of the convention considering its early days in 1993 – using desktops for fixing pr- lems in technology and engineering. the current postconference publication contains the simplest papers and invited talks awarded through the 3 days of the convention, held on the school of Engineering of the collage of Porto (Portugal), June 26–28 2002. The ebook is prepared into eight chapters, which as a complete attract a large examine group, from these keen on the engineering purposes to these drawn to the particular info of the or software program implementation, in keeping with what, at present, has a tendency to be regarded as Computational technology and Engineering (CSE). The publication contains a complete of forty nine papers, with a popular place reserved for the 4 invited talks and the 2 ?rst prizes of the simplest scholar paper competition.
