Please note that this page is under construction. We are documenting the 240-node cluster maya that will be available after Summer 2014. Currently, the 84-node cluster tara still operates independently, until it becomes part of maya at the end of Summer 2014. Please see the 2013 Resources Pages under the Resources tab for tara information.
Resilience and Scalability Modeling for Exascale Computing using Nonlinear Optimization techniques

This research focuses on measuring parallel application behavior of various high performance computing hardware and providing performance feedback using optimization techniques. The approach uses a simulation framework and run time software interface to gather metrics that can be used for predicting application performance at scale.
