Supercomputing: A Very Personal Perspective
Supercomputing has come a long way from when I was first exposed to it in the early 1990s. In many domains, it has gone from being a scientific tool to an entire way of doing science, the nature of which evolves as the field itself changes. In this talk, I will cover some of these aspects in a general way and then focus on computational cosmology and the development and evolution of the HACC code as a specific example of a guided response to hardware and scientific imperatives.
