NYU Courant Scientist Receives DOE’s Massive Computing Project Award to Develop Magnetic Fusion Energy


Choong-Seock Chang, a research professor at New York University s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, has received a Department of Energy (DOE) award to carry out ultra large-scale computation using the Cray XT supercomputer at the department s Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee. The awarded 20 million hours of computing time-roughly equivalent to running a single-processor desktop computer for more than 2,280 years-is among the largest awards given to a single project. The computation will be using more than 100,000 processors at a time.
