High performance computing

Most popular at the top

  • Contemporary High Performance Computingby Jeffrey S. Vetter

    CRC Press 2015; US$ 99.95

    HPC is used to solve a number of complex questions in computational and data-intensive sciences. These questions include the simulation and modeling of physical phenomena, such as climate change, energy production, drug design, global security, and materials design; the analysis of large data sets such as those in genome sequencing, astronomical observation,... more...

  • Negative Quantum Channelsby James M. McCracken

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2014; US$ 50.00

    This book is a brief introduction to negative quantum channels, i.e., linear, trace-preserving (and consistent) quantum maps that are not completely positive. The flat and sharp operators are introduced and explained. Complete positivity is presented as a mathematical property, but it is argued that complete positivity is not a physical requirement... more...

  • Approximability of Optimization Problems through Adiabatic Quantum Computationby William Cruz-Santos; Guillermo Morales-Luna

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2014; US$ 40.00

    The adiabatic quantum computation (AQC) is based on the adiabatic theorem to approximate solutions of the Schrödinger equation. The design of an AQC algorithm involves the construction of a Hamiltonian that describes the behavior of the quantum system. This Hamiltonian is expressed as a linear interpolation of an initial Hamiltonian whose ground state... more...

  • High Performance Serversby Architecture Technology Corpor

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 370.00

    Please note this is a Short Discount publication. LANs have gone through stages. Early LANs connected asychronous terminals to minicomputers. With the advent of the IBM PC the focus on technology changed to that of PCs connected to some type of 'file server'. After a number of years, the battle over file servers turned into a battle of network... more...

  • Quantum Correlations Beyond Entanglementby Alexander Streltsov

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 46.80

    Quantum correlations are not restricted to the well known entanglement investigated in Bell-type experiments. Other forms of correlations, for example quantum discord, have recently been shown to play an important role in several aspects of quantum information theory. First experiments also support these findings. This book is an introduction into... more...

  • Geometric Methods in Physicsby Piotr Kielanowski; Pierre Bieliavsky; Anatol Odzijewicz; Martin Schlichenmaier; Theodore Voronov

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 108.86

    ?This book presents a selection of papers based on the XXXIII Bia?owie?a Workshop on Geometric Methods in Physics, 2014. The Bia?owie?a Workshops are among the most important meetings in the field and attract researchers from both mathematics and physics. The articles gathered here are mathematically rigorous and have important physical implications,... more...

  • Quantum Networkingby Rodney Van Meter

    Wiley 2014; US$ 145.00 US$ 125.67

    Quantum networks build on entanglement and quantum measurement to achieve tasks that are beyond the reach of classical systems. Using quantum effects, we can detect the presence of eavesdroppers, raise the sensitivity of scientific instruments such as telescopes, or teleport quantum data from one location to another. Long-distance entanglement can... more...

  • Nano, Quantum and Molecular Computingby Sandeep Kumar Shukla; R. Iris Bahar

    Springer US 2007; US$ 152.41

    One of the grand challenges in the nano-scopic computing era is guarantees of robustness. Robust computing system design is confronted with quantum physical, probabilistic, and even biological phenomena, and guaranteeing high reliability is much more difficult than ever before. Scaling devices down to the level of single electron operation will bring... more...

  • High Performance Computing Systems and Applicationsby Andrew Pollard; Douglas J.K. Mewhort; Donald F. Weaver

    Springer US 2006; US$ 185.07

    High Performance Computing Systems and Applications contains the fully refereed papers from the 13th Annual Symposium on High Performance Computing, held in Kingston, Canada, in June 1999. This book presents the latest research in HPC architectures, distributed and shared memory performance, algorithms and solvers, with special sessions on atmospheric... more...

  • Information Brokering Across Heterogeneous Digital Databy Vipul Kashyap; Amit P. Sheth

    Springer US 2006; US$ 174.19

    Information intermediation is the foundation stone of some of the most successful Internet companies, and is perhaps second only to the Internet Infrastructure companies. On the heels of information integration and interoperability, this book on information brokering discusses the next step in information interoperability and integration. The... more...
