Computing Up: Nucleus-Nucleus
Collisions and the Previous: How
In theoretical studies of matter at extreme temperatures and densities,
a common problem has emerged in recent years. The evaluation of large and
complex systems of many degrees of freedom becomes possible only if theorists
have access to high performance computational facilities and sufficient
manpower. For the experimental investigation in this field, considerable
investments are being made and will be made in Europe during the next decade.
To assure that the resulting data indeed lead to the anticipated increase
in our understanding, a commensurate support must be provided for the associated
theoretical work. In particular, this requires:
a European facility for large-scale computing in the field;
support for the manpower and the training of young theorists and for their
needed computational equipment;
a European forum for the crucial interchange between theory and experiment.
