Open Science Grid is a consortium of researchers from universities and national laboratories that operates a national computing infrastructure serving large-scale scientific and engineering research. While OSG's scale has been primarily driven by the demands of the LHC experiments, it currently serves particle and nuclear physics, gravitational wave searches, digital astronomy, genomic...

Since 2001, the TeraGrid has developed into a world-class integrated, national-scale computational science infrastructure with funding from the NSF's Office of Cyberinfrastructure (OCI). Recently, the TeraGrid project came to an end and has been supplanted by the NSF's eXtreme Digital program, opening a new chapter in cyberinfrastructure by creating the most advanced, powerful, and robust...
50. Quantum transport and nanoplasmonics with carbon nanorings - using HPC in computational nanoscience
Mark Jack (Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University)
Central theme of this talk is the theoretical study of toroidal carbon nanostructures as a new form of metamaterial. The interference of ring-generated electromagnetic radiation in a regular array of nanorings driven by an incoming polarized wave front may lead to fascinating new optoelectronics applications. The tight-binding method is used to model charge transport in a carbon nanotorus: All...

Discrete molecular dynamics (DMD) simulation of hard spheres was the first implementation of molecular dynamics (MD) in history. DMD simulations are computationally more efficient than continuous MD simulations due to simplified interaction potentials. However, also due to these simplified potentials, DMD has often been associated with coarse-grained modeling, and hence continuous MD has...
