FMI has programme for numeric integration in random number of dimensions in supercomputer environment

A programme developed at the Finnish Meteorological Institute makes it possible to use a supercomputer to calculate numerical integrals in a random number of dimensions.

A programme developed at the Finnish Meteorological Institute makes it possible to use a supercomputer to calculate numerical integrals in a random number of dimensions. Until now such software has been limited to either desktop computer environments or to a maximum of about 20 dimensions. The new software allows the use of a supercomputer in the calculation of complex integrals, which makes it possible to get results up to 100 times faster.
