CRD Researchers Edit Book on High Performance Visualization

September 18, 2012

Wes Bethel and Hank Childs of CRD, along with Charles Hansen of the University of Utah, have edited the book High Performance Visualization: Enabling Extreme-Scale Scientific Insight, which is now available for order from CRC Press. The publication date is October 19. The book focuses on algorithm design, implementation, and optimization for visualization and analysis tools on emerging multi- and many-core platforms. It collects some of the most seminal work in the field, including algorithms and implementations running at the highest levels of concurrency and used by scientific researchers worldwide.

Other CRD staff who contributed to the book include Oliver Rübel, Prabhat, Kesheng John Wu, David Camp, Mark Howison, Gunther Weber, and Hari Krishnan. Berkeley Lab Deputy Director Horst Simon wrote the foreword.

About Berkeley Lab

Founded in 1931 on the belief that the biggest scientific challenges are best addressed by teams, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and its scientists have been recognized with 16 Nobel Prizes. Today, Berkeley Lab researchers develop sustainable energy and environmental solutions, create useful new materials, advance the frontiers of computing, and probe the mysteries of life, matter, and the universe. Scientists from around the world rely on the Lab’s facilities for their own discovery science. Berkeley Lab is a multiprogram national laboratory, managed by the University of California for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.

DOE’s Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States, and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time. For more information, please visit
