*CIS(theta) 2016-2017: *

*May **Meeting**: Quadrature!*

We worked with sample MPI code:

*InstantCluster Step 7: *

*Coding IA - quad-serial.py*

*Coding IB - quad-mpi.py*

*InstantCluster Step 8: *

*Coding IIA - mandel-serial.py*

*Coding IIB - mandel-mpi.py*

*InstantCluster Step 9: *

*Coding IIC - Mandel Zoom Movie*

*InstantCluster Step 10: *

*Coding III - POVRay 3D Rendering*

*InstantCluster Step 11: *

*Coding IVA - Blender 3D Rendering*

*InstantCluster Step 12: *

*Coding IVB - Blender 3D Animation*

SETI Search

Econometrics

Bioinformatics

Protein Folding

Beal Conjecture

Scientific Computing

Computational Physics

Mersenne Prime Search

Computational Chemistry

Computational Astronomy

Computer Aided Design (CAD)

Computer Algebra Systems (CAS)

These are but a few examples of using Computer Science to solve problems in Mathematics and the Sciences (STEAM). In fact, many of these applications fall under the heading of Cluster Programming or Super Computing. These problems typically take too long to process on a single PC, so we need a lot more horse power. Next time, maybe we'll just use Titan!
