The project "10M-Core Scalable Fully-Implicit Solver for Nonhydrostatic Atmospheric Dynamics" led by a joint Chinese research team, won the 2016 ACM Gordon Bell prize, the top award in the field of supercomputing. It was led by researchers from the Institute of Software of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Tsinghua University, and Beijing Normal University, etc.
The research team proposed a fully implicit solver suitable for a heterogeneous many-core platform, which improved the efficiency of long-term numerical simulation and explored the computation power of the Sunway TaihuLight supercomputer as well.
Ever since the debut of "Sunway TaihuLight" on June 20, 2016, a number of projects led by research teams at home and abroad have made progress using this system, tallying more than 100 achievements, including applications in 19 areas, such as climate and weather, ocean, aerospace, biology, materials, high-energy physics, and pharmacy, etc.
