In this video from the Science on Saturday series, Vic Castillo from LLNL and Rodger Johnson from Monte Vista High School present: Computer Simulation – Exploring Nature with a Computer.
Computers are becoming an increasingly cheaper, more powerful tool that cannot be ignored by professionals. Computer simulation reproduces the behavior of natural and man-made systems to help us understand, predict, and communicate. In this series kick-off, we will show you how computer simulation is used by LLNL scientists on the worlds fastest computers. We will also show you how you can get started doing your own computer simulations with free, open-source tools for class projects or just for fun.
