A new generation of teraflop- and petaflop-class supercomputers is being developed to meet daunting computational demands imposed by both the U.S. Energy Dept.'s nuclear weapon ``stockpile stewardship'' program and the complexities of high-Mach future aircraft designs. These machines will be capable of performing a trillion (tera) and, eventually, a million billion (peta) floating point operations/sec. (flops). A teraflop-capable supercomputer would enable accurate modeling and ...
