Mountain forests in the Alps react very differently but noticeably to a warmer climate. Even if the target of limiting the Earth’s average temperature increase to 2 degrees were met, this would already prove too much of a challenge for some mountain forests. This is the result of computer simulations by researchers at ETH Zurich. […]

The Swiss National Supercomputing Centre CSCS in Lugano, Switzerland, organized on December 10-12, 2012 the course “Getting the best out of multi-core”. Modern multi-core x86 processors have 100 times more peak performance than similar single-core processors from ten years ago, but most applications haven’t been able to leverage this power to their advantage. The three-day […]
