Graphics processing units (GPUs) are rapidly emerging as a powerful and cost-effective platform for high-performance parallel computing. The current generation of GPUs sports capabilities in TFLOP range, already an order of magnitude greater than most powerful x86 CPUs.
Prospects in Theoretical Physics is an intensive two-week summer program designed for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars considering a career in theoretical physics. The 2007 program was held from July 16 to July 27. First held by the School of Natural Sciences at the Institute for Advanced Study in the summer of 2002, the PiTP program is designed to provide lecture courses and informal sessions on the latest advances and open questions in various areas of theoretical physics.
Nathan Seiberg, Professor, School of Natural Sciences. This lecture discusses how the Large Hadron Collider is expected to provide further information about the standard model of particle physics, which describes the elementary particles and the forces acting between them.
