Slide title: GRID Computing: Collaboration between USA and Japan
Slide image: The image, a composite of two images, comes from a presentation entitled, "Billion-atom Multiscale Simulations of Nanosystems on a Grid" and illustrates grid computing and how calculations at the quantum level, perhaps involving billions of atoms, can be carried out collaboratively between the U.S. and Japan.
At the bottom of the image is a map showing eastern Asia and most of North America. Lines have been drawn from Japan and California to three areas in the top image showing that different parts of the calculations can be done in different locations. (QM stands for "Quantum Mechanics.") The lines indicate that the QM1 and QM3 calculations are performed in Japan and QM2 calculations are carried out in California.
