Scientists have made the first-ever calculation of a prediction involving the decay of certain matter and antimatter particles using supercomputers in Europe, Japan and the US


26 Nov 2015 - Symmetry magazine reports that an international team of scientists has made the first ever calculation of an effect called direct charge-parity violation - or CP violation - a difference between the decay of matter particles and of their antimatter counterparts. They made their calculation using the Blue Gene/Q supercomputers at the RIKEN BNL Research Center at Brookhaven National Laboratory, at the Argonne Leadership Class Computing Facility at Argonne National Laboratory, and at the DiRAC facility at the University of Edinburgh. According to Symmetry magazine, the work took more than 200 million supercomputer core processing hours.
