Nobel Prize winner Walter Kohn, passed away on April 19'th.   It is hard to overestimate the impact of his work, since density functional theory is used by a a majority of our users, in fields such as Chemistry, Physics, materials science, drug design, etc..  DFT truly brought computational science into it's own as a field and it is now widely used in both initial discovery as well as understanding of experimental results, and improvement of electronic devices and materials in general.  In addition, Walter was a wonderful, modest, human being - full of stories - but who would also listen to

UC Santa Barbara's Center for Scientific Computing (CSC) has added a state-of-the-art, high-performance, computing cluster to its resources for campus researchers from a variety of disciplines. The center is co-directed by Frank Brown, professor in the UCSB Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, and Paul Weakliem. Housed at Elings Hall, CSC is a collaboration between CNSI and the Materials Research Laboratory (MRL).

The new Hewlett-Packard cluster has the computing power of 12 TeraFLOPS, or 12 trillion floating point operations per second. It will fulfill the need for calculations and simulations that are too large for desktop computers or workstations, but below those normally run at the handful of national supercomputing centers.

For UCSB research groups that do very large calculations at national supercomputing centers, the new system provides a test bed for code development and testing before a project is moved into production on a supercomputer.
