''While there are numerous very important structures in excessive functionality computing (HPC) on hand at the present time, the HPC group lacks a unmarried reference at the key facets of the platforms, equivalent to program workloads, procurement timeline, and amenities specification. This ebook presents the 1st complete source to explain those platforms and their and software program architectures. the 1st a part of the booklet explores present traits in HPC. the second one half provides designated descriptions of deployed platforms that span a couple of architectures, program workloads, amenities, and sponsors''--
''Preface we're happy to give you with this choice of fabric that captures a photo of the wealthy historical past of perform in modern excessive functionality Computing. As evidenced within the chapters of this booklet, excessive functionality Computing keeps to flourish, either in and study, either regionally and across the world. whereas a lot of the focal point of HPC is at the architectures, an important surroundings is answerable for this luck. Why I edited this e-book My aim with this booklet has been to spotlight major structures and amenities in excessive functionality computing. Early on, my major concentration was once proposed to be at the architectural layout of significant and winning HPC platforms. although, i spotted that HPC is ready greater than simply undefined: it really is an surroundings that incorporates software program, functions, amenities, educators, software program builders, scientists, directors, sponsors, and lots of different components. This booklet is a image of those modern HPC ecosystems, that are ordinarily punctuated with a site's flagship procedure. frequently, HPC is becoming across the world, so I invited contributions from a wide base of firms together with the us, China, Japan, Russia, Germany, and Switzerland. My pleasure approximately this ebook grew as i began inviting authors to give a contribution: every person acknowledged 'yes!' in truth, because of the boundaries on hardback publishing, we needed to restrict the variety of chapters that shall we comprise during this version; in spite of the fact that, switch in HPC is accelerating, so a moment version of this booklet might be warranted. As I clarify within the creation, the speed of swap in HPC is accelerating''-- Read more...

Weick (1995: 111) highlights sense making as a connection of the frames residing in the past and present. The expectations, beliefs and assumptions that emerge from these frames in turn shape the interpretation of a situation (such as the identification of an object) and decision making. The illusion of certainty associated with the accuracy of the navigation and sensor systems, supported by the ROE and the SOPs that were followed in the conduct of the mission, the authorization of the Land component commander regarding the target identity, all converge to reinforce a mental model of the situation.
In principle then, non-humans have the potential to act, a potential which arises from the network relations in which they are enmeshed. This is a critical element in understanding accident aetiology from this actor network perspective. This decentered aetiology that is characterized by the hybrid collectif reveals that as argued by Dolwick (2009: 42) ‘… if one were to try to draw a map of all of the actors present in any interaction, at any particular moment in time, instead of a well-demarcated frame, one would produce a highly convoluted network with a multiplicity of diverse dates, places and people’ (figure 1).
