It's good to see the DoE being tasked with doing something commercially useful; 'beating their swords into ploughshares', some might say.

I'm not sure you have it quite right about running thousands of copies of the same application with slightly different initial conditions. That you can do with thousands of Personal Computers, connected by fairly-low-bandwidth networking. You could do it (for example) by setting it as a homework project in a moderately-large school. A good start, and I wish my children's schools would try it, but there is a further level that needs reliable, high-density infrastructure servers.

Extreme scale computing (to my mind) has more to do with how you tie large numbers of processors together to work on a single problem. Here is Intel Research's contribution so far http://techresearch.intel.com/articles/Tera-Scale/1826.htm ; they can build hardware (as can IBM) but the question of how to deploy it productively is a research topic, and one where they are seeking collaborators. It's an Emerging Technology, and (as far as I can tell) no business or academic organization is sure of the way forward.

One of the IBM ventures in the field is of course Blue Gene http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/deepcomputing/bluegene/ . Should we view this as the prototype of things to come ? Some minaturization needed, and some reduction in the power consumption, maybe; but it's available now for early technology adopters to use; and it's likely to be the early adopters who will figure out how to exploit it to make commercially-useful solutions, and that's where the money will be.

Irving Wladawsky-Berger's insights on relative quantum physics are to-the-point, and lead to the central issue of the atomic model in Schrodinger terms of probability calculations. Recent advancements in quantum science have produced the picoyoctometric, 3D, interactive video atomic model imaging function, in terms of chronons and spacons for exact, quantized, relativistic animation. This format returns clear numerical data for a full spectrum of variables. The atom's RQT (relative quantum topological) data point imaging function is built by combination of the relativistic Einstein-Lorenz transform functions for time, mass, and energy with the workon quantized electromagnetic wave equations for frequency and wavelength.

The atom labeled psi (Z) pulsates at the frequency {Nhu=e/h} by cycles of {e=m(c^2)} transformation of nuclear surface mass to forcons with joule values, followed by nuclear force absorption. This radiation process is limited only by spacetime boundaries of {Gravity-Time}, where gravity is the force binding space to psi, forming the GT integral atomic wavefunction. The expression is defined as the series expansion differential of nuclear output rates with quantum symmetry numbers assigned along the progression to give topology to the solutions.

Next, the correlation function for the manifold of internal heat capacity energy particle 3D functions is extracted by rearranging the total internal momentum function to the photon gain rule and integrating it for GT limits. This produces a series of 26 topological waveparticle functions of the five classes; {+Positron, Workon, Thermon, -Electromagneton, Magnemedon}, each the 3D data image of a type of energy intermedon of the 5/2 kT J internal energy cloud, accounting for all of them.

Those 26 energy data values intersect the sizes of the fundamental physical constants: h, h-bar, delta, nuclear magneton, beta magneton, k (series). They quantize atomic dynamics by acting as fulcrum particles. The result is the exact picoyoctometric, 3D, interactive video atomic model data point imaging function, responsive to keyboard input of virtual photon gain events by relativistic, quantized shifts of electron, force, and energy field states and positions. This system also gives a new equation for the magnetic flux variable B, which appears as a waveparticle of changeable frequency.

Images of the h-bar magnetic energy waveparticle of ~175 picoyoctometers are available online at http://www.symmecon.com with the complete RQT atomic modeling manual titled The Crystalon Door, copyright TXu1-266-788. TCD conforms to the unopposed motion of disclosure in U.S. District (NM) Court of 04/02/2001 titled The Solution to the Equation of Schrodinger.



Quantum Mechanics

The quantum mechanics seem to apply at small scales, nobody has seen evidence of them on a large scale, where outside influences can more easily destroy fragile quantum states.
