Sir James Lighthill Distinguished LectureshipPublic Lecture: Exaflop/s, Seriously!Wednesday, February 16, 2011 - 4:00 p.m.Alumni Center BallroomRefreshments will be served at 3:30 p.m.The paths to the exascale summit are debated, but all are narrow and treacherous, constrained by physics, cost, power consumption, program-mability, and reliability. Nevertheless, computational scientists have an insatiable appetite for extreme performance arising from requirements of resolution, fidelity, dimension, artificial boundaries, multiphysics, inversion and assimilation, optimization and control, and uncertainty quantifi-cation. Looking beyond the Pax MPI of the past two decades, we propose architectural, programming model, and algorithmic directions in one of the great globally-joined scientific quests of the next decades.Mathematics Lecture:A Nonlinearly Implicit ManifestoThursday, February 17, 2010 - 3:30 p.m.101 Love BuildingRefreshments will be served at 3:00 p.m. in 204 Love Building.
