3 Apr 2012 Ulster - Research and Markets has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd.'s new book "Large-Scale Computing Techniques for Complex System Simulations" to their offering.
Complex systems modelling and simulation approaches are being adopted in a growing number of sectors, including finance, economics, biology, astronomy, and many more. Technologies ranging from distributed computing to specialized hardware are explored and developed to address the computational requirements arising in complex systems simulations.
The aim of this book is to present a representative overview of contemporary large-scale computing technologies in the context of complex systems simulations applications. The intention is to identify new research directions in this field and to provide a communications platform facilitating an exchange of concepts, ideas and needs between the scientists and technologist and complex system modelers. On the application side, the book focuses on modelling and simulation of natural and man-made complex systems. On the computing technology side, emphasis is placed on the distributed computing approaches, but supercomputing and other novel technologies are also considered.
Key topics covered include:
1. State-of-the-Art Technologies for Large-Scale Computing
2. The e-Infrastructure Ecosystems: Providing Local Support to Global Science
3. Accelerated Many-Core GPU Computing for Physics and Astrophysics on Three Continents
4. An Overview of the SimWorld Agent-Based Grid Experimentation Systems
5. Repast HPC: A Platform for Large-Scale Agent-Based Modelling
6. Building and Running Collaborative Distributed Multiscale Applications
7. Large-Scale Data-Intensive Computing
8. A Topology-Aware Evolutionary Algorithm for Reverse-Engineering Gene Regulatory Networks
9. QosCosGrid e-Science Infrastructure for Large-Scale Complex System Simulations
There are three authors.
Werner Dubitzky, PhD, is Chair of Bioinformatics at the Biomedical Sciences Research Institute in the Faculty of Life and Health Sciences at the University of Ulster. His research investigates systems biology, knowledge management in biology, Grid computing, and data mining.
Krzysztof Kurowski, PhD, leads the Applications Department at Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center in Poland. His research is focused on the modeling of advanced applications, scheduling, and resource management in networked environments.
Bernhard Schott, Dipl. Phys., is the EU-Research Programme Manager for Platform Computing GmbH.
