Abstract:

In accordance with this URIP program, the following equipment has been acquired and installed a FPS-164 MAX scientific computer with 1M words of memory, a matrix algebra accelerator, and FPS-164 MAX D64 disk subsystem with two drives. The scientific computing facility based on this equipment is now operational. It is housed in a specially constructed computer room in close proximity to the four principal departments involved in this activity. From the outset, the facility has been actively used for a range of research projects, including 1 Methods for the solution of differentialalgebraic equations with particular applications to sheet-metal forming and related problems in solid mechanics, 2 Development of computable error estimates of solutions of nonlinear boundary value problems for partial differential equations by finite element techniques, 3 Computational research in crystallography involving principally the determination of three-dimensional structures of biological macromolecules at atomic resolution by x-ray diffraction, 4 Computational methods for solution of parameterized equations with particular emphasis on bifurcation phenomena.
