Computing in 2001-- Hardware: Developing the Metacomputer


Mark A. Stadtherr, Haruna N. Cofer and Kyle V. Camarda


Since the mid-1980s, computational power at all price levels, ranging from desktop personal computers to state-of-the-art supercomputers, has increased by factors approaching two orders of magnitude. This is a trend that dates back decades, and there is every indication that it is a trend that will continue into the next decade. This paper concentrates on this growth in computational power, the technologies underlying it, the techniques required to exploit it, and its impact in chemical engineering applications.
