This uniquely comprehensive book brings together the vast amount of technical, economic, and political information and the analyses of supercomputing that have hitherto been buried in the frequently inaccessible "gray literature." Seventy-nine distinguished participants in the second Frontiers of Supercomputing conference offer perceptive and often controversial views on the emerging computing environment in the United States.
From the Inside Flap
"Will be welcomed by many communities--academic, federal, and industrial. With new and little-known information on high-performance computing, it is the great compendium describing the last seven years of activities and looking to the future."--Charles Bender, Director, The Ohio Supercomputer Center
"A valuable resource and an important contribution to thinking in this area. . . . I am impressed with the scope and coherence of this material, ranging from technical projections to the political context to market and user perspectives on supercomputers and supercomputing."--James G. Glimm, State University of New York at Stonybrook
