Today’s machines function on the teraflop point (trillions of floating aspect operations in line with moment) and this booklet describes learn into the petaflop quarter (1,015 FLOPS). The six chapters supply an outline of present actions that may supply for the creation of those machines within the years 2011 via 2015.
