ACM Transactions Issue Dedicated to DOE’s ACTS Collection of HPC Tools
November 1, 2005
The Association of Computing Machinery dedicated the September 2005 issue of Transactions on Mathematical Software (ACM TOMS) to the ACTS Collection. The DOE Advanced CompuTational Software (ACTS) Collection (http://acts.nersc.gov) comprises a set of tools mainly developed at the DOE laboratories. These software tools aim to simplify the solution of common and important computational problems and have substantially benefited a wide range of scientific and industrial
The ACTS Collection is maintained by Osni Marques and Tony Drummond of CRD’s Scientific Computing Group. They also served as guest editors-in-chief for the special issue, as well as authors of two articles in the journal. Sherry Li of the Scientific Computing Group also contributed “An Overview of SuperLU: Algorithms, Implementation, and User Interface.”
The ACM TOMS table of contents and links to the articles can be found at <http://www.acm.org/toms/Current.html#v31n3>.
About Computing Sciences at Berkeley Lab
The Computing Sciences Area at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory provides the computing and networking resources and expertise critical to advancing Department of Energy Office of Science research missions: developing new energy sources, improving energy efficiency, developing new materials, and increasing our understanding of ourselves, our world, and our universe.
Founded in 1931 on the belief that the biggest scientific challenges are best addressed by teams, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and its scientists have been recognized with 13 Nobel Prizes. Today, Berkeley Lab researchers develop sustainable energy and environmental solutions, create useful new materials, advance the frontiers of computing, and probe the mysteries of life, matter, and the universe. Scientists from around the world rely on the Lab’s facilities for their own discovery science. Berkeley Lab is a multiprogram national laboratory, managed by the University of California for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.
DOE’s Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States, and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time. For more information, please visit energy.gov/science.
