- Many congratulations to Stan Scott and Penny Scott (Queen's University, Belfast),
Liviu Ixaru (Horia Hulubei National Institute of Physics and Nuclear Engineering
POB MG-6, Bucharest) and Christophe Denis (University Pierre et Marie Curie-Paris 6)
on being awarded the UK Research Councils' HEC Strategy Committee HPC Prize 2006
for machine utilization, for work on the fast computation of Slater integrals. The
research was focused on improving a suite of two-dimensional R-matrix propagation
programs aimed at creating virtual experiments on HPC and Grid architectures to
study electron scattering from H-like atoms and ions at intermediate energies.
The resulting algorithms are embodied in a new computational strategy that is
more accurate and is between one and two orders of magnitude faster than the original
implementation. By further exploiting parallelism on HPCx the resulting implementation
is up to 350 times faster than the original and 25 times less costly.
