Opening Frontiers: Extreme Capability Computing at LLNL

Very large--‐scale computation promises to be as revolutionary for industry as it has been for science–opening windows to discovery and spurring innovation. Using examples drawn from our experience at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory I will discuss how the use of ever more powerful computers is overcoming limitations of scale, resolution and complexity to produce game--‐changing results.
