Demonstration of the Netherlands' smallest supercomputer at TU Delft Institute for Computational Science and Engineering kick-off event
The Little Green Machine II is a supercomputer with the computing power of 10,000 PCs, the size of four pizza boxes and electricity consumption just 1% of that of a comparable large supercomputer. At the kick-off event for the TU Delft Institute for Computational Science and Engineering (DCSE) on Tuesday 23 May, project manager Simon Portegies Zwart (Leiden University) will give a demonstration of this small-scale computing miracle.
TU Delft researcher improves modelling for effects of kilometre charge
It is highly likely that some form of kilometre charge will be on the political agenda during the present talks on the formation of the new government. However, there is much room for improvement in the models used to predict the effects of a kilometre charge. Erik-Sander Smits has combined know-how from game theory, choice analyses, traffic flow theory and the transport economy to create a better modelling. On Tuesday 16 May the NWO researcher will be awarded a PhD at TU Delft for his work on this subject.
