Alliance (NCSA) hopes to accelerate the creation of a nationwide parallel computing environment for the US by developing hardware and software that will ease desktop access to the National Technology Grid. NCSA's plans focus on experimental computer architectures, high performance user programs, machine independent analyzers for parallel computers and advanced application support that leverage parallel adaptive methods and numerical optimization. © COPYRIGHT 1997 Association for Computing
