Grant Description

Summary and Description of the grant

Computer simulation has become ubiquitous in modern science and engineering. Computer simulations are used to model problems from ocean currents to atomic interactions. A significant change is under way in computer hardware with the arrival of special processors which are far more powerful than previous generations, are low cost and use less energy. A common feature of these new processors is that they can perform computations in a massively parallel fashion on a single chip. However, to exploit these high power, low cost processors, changes are needed in the way that computer programs for science are created. This research aims to assist researchers in using this new hardware by developing the technology to create computer programs automatically from simple, high-level input. With this technology, researchers will be able to create new computer programs rapidly and with a minimum of errors, and the programs will be optimised for the new hardware of today. This will accelerate research in many fields, and lead to new scientific insights through simulation. As computer hardware evolves in the future, researchers can simply re-generate their computer programs for new generations of hardware.
