Advanced Computation (SciDAC) program has funded a software development program and medium-sized prototype hardware, which is now being constructed.
Summary: Working Group on QCD and Strong Interactions
In logic and computer science the boundary between hardware and software is first met at the machine level with the built-in capabilities of the hardware determining the type of software that can be written for it.
Once the hardware is con figured properly for a certain type of experiment and for a certain number and kind of spins, the user can set up new experiments entirely by computer.
Experimental Quantum Computation with Nuclear Spins in Liquid Solution
This implies that it is limited only by error introduced by the method used to solve the system of equations produced by the Source Galerkin procedure and by the numerical precision of the hardware used for computation.
A Test of The Source Galerkin Method
The importance of numerical simulations in the investigation of such complex physics has long been recognized, but until recently the necessary computational hardware was not available.
A Numerical Method for General Relativistic Magnetohydrodynamics
If X and Y are complementary goods (e.g., computer hardware and software), the cross-price elasticity of demand may be negative; that is, the quantity of good X varies inversely with a change in the price of good Y .

So, a parallel solver may be mapped to massively parallel computers, whereas for other solvers special purpose hardware may be available, or just single PC’s in a cluster.
Towards Distributed Petascale Computing
No single computer will be able to perform the resulting multitude of computations, and therefore it provides a excellent example for a hybrid simulation environment containing a wide variety of distributed hardware.
