SciDAC projects in lattice QCD

SciDAC projects in lattice QCD: Three national labs and seven universities receive SciDAC funding to improve the U.S. infrastructure for lattice gauge computing. The goal is to build 10-teraflop hardware for lattice QCD by 2006. The sites obtaining new installations are:

development of a purpose-built supercomputer with 10,000 processors.

Thomas Jefferson Lab, working with Boston University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology: development of a commodity cluster for computing the structure of the proton and hadron physics.

Fermilab, working with University of Arizona, University of California at Santa Barbara, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, University of Utah: development of a commodity cluster for computing Standard Model parameters like weak matrix elements.
