# 2008 DOE Summer School in Multiscale Mathematics and High Performance Computing

## 4-6 August | Richland, Washington

The Northwest Consortium for Multiscale Mathematics and Applications held the 2008 DOE summer school on multiscale mathematics and high performance computing August 4-6, 2008, on the campus of the Washington State University—Tri-Cities. The sessions were videotaped and are now available for you to view online.

The purpose of this summer school was to provide:

- introductions to the mathematical and computational methods commonly used to model physical systems at various scales: continuum methods, discrete methods, statistical methods, network methods
- surveys of developing mathematical and computational approaches for bridging the scales between current methods
- tutorials on parallel computing and MPI
- instructor-led laboratory activities for exploring the lecture concepts in parallel computing environments
- research talks to motivate the development of new methods

The funding for this workshop was provided by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research's program in Multiscale Mathematics.
