A new mathematical “shortcut” developed by Berkeley Lab researchers is speeding up molecular absorption calculations by a factor of five, so simulations that used to take 10 to 15 hours to compute can now be done in approximately 2.5 hours. These algorithms will be incorporated in an upcoming release of the widely used NWChem computational chemistry software suite later this year.

An HPC for Manufacturing project co-led by CRD's David Trebotich could help U.S. paper manufacturers significantly reduce production costs and increase energy efficiencies.The papermaking industry currently ranks third among the country’s largest energy users, behind only petroleum refining and chemical production.
A software toolkit developed in Berkeley Lab's Computational Research Division to better understand supercomputer performance is now being used to boost application performance for researchers running codes on manycore supercomputers at NERSC and other supercomputing facilities.
Danny Goldstein, a Berkeley Lab Graduate Student Researcher in CRD’s Computational Cosmology Center, has been awarded the Berkeley Trumpler Award for his academic excellence, as well as his outstanding record of involvement in the UC Berkeley Astronomy Department and wider astronomical community.
