The simulations are performed on Linux/Gnu computers with CPU speeds between 350 to 450 MHz.
Monte Carlo Simulations of the Random-Field Ising Model
Individual runs with L = 128 at 5000 MC steps per spin and covering 10K in T typically take one week of CPU time.
Monte Carlo Simulations of the Random-Field Ising Model
In their optimized implementation of the Max-Flow algorithm, they studied L3 lattices up to L = 90, and found empirically that the CPU time varied as L4 .
Computer Science in Physics
For example, given an algorithm for the exact ground state of a threedimensional spin glass such as branch-and-cut, one can study the distribution of CPU times required to solve the problem for different realizations of disorder.
Computer Science in Physics
The cpu time is also much larger, but is still far less than the time required for the nonlinear evolution.
Multiscale Gaussian Random Fields for Cosmological Simulations
The CPU time may be saved if the functions are appropriately defined.
Integration of GRACE and PYTHIA
The functional-mapping method gives a better performance in CPU time than the grid-mapping method, as expected.
Integration of GRACE and PYTHIA
Therefore, by iterating Eq. (5), the stationary current distribution can be approximated accurately, mainly limited by the available CPU time and the precision of floating-point arithmetics.
Multifractal current distribution in random diode networks
Nevertheless, the necessary order of magnitude of CPU times for these kinds of calculations is expected to be available for the lattice community in forthcoming years.
On the price of light quarks
These fragments are comparable in mass to the dark matter particles and the reduction in the number of particles provides a modest decrease in the CPU time per step.
The impact of galaxy formation on X-ray groups
Although such a box is too small for quantitative predictions, it allows us to compare a small sample of the same ob jects at different resolution, without requiring a large investment in CPU time.

On the other hand the EF I/O library itself is critical since it is used by every SFI and shares the same CPU resources of the Event Builder. Figure c shows the degradation in Event Builder performance when the EF I/O is switched on.
The DataFlow System of the ATLAS Trigger and DAQ
The fundamental drawback of this kind of calculations consists on the fact that, due to their complexity, it is only possible to simulate, within a reasonable amount of cpu time, few tra jectories lasting for a tiny fraction of the overall folding time.
Simple models of protein folding and of non--conventional drug design
This ushering is done in favor of trying to integrate the memory and CPU metrics into a single scalar value.
