The Department of Energy's Office of Science interviewed LLNL computer scientist Peter Lindstrom about his work since receiving the 2011 Early Career Award.
An LLNL-led effort in data compression was one of nine projects recently funded by the DOE for research aimed at shrinking the amount of data needed to advance scientific discovery.
High-precision numerical data from computer simulations, observations, and experiments is often represented in floating point and can easily reach terabytes to petabytes of storage.
fpzip is a library for lossless or lossy compression of multidimensional floating-point arrays. It was primarily designed for lossless compression.
Highlights include the directorate's annual external review, machine learning for ALE simulations, CFD modeling for low-carbon solutions, seismic modeling, and an in-line floating point compression tool.
hzip 1.0.1 is a C++ library for lossless compression of structured and unstructured meshes composed of cells with hypercube topology.
zfp is an open-source C/C++ library for compressed floating-point and integer arrays that support high throughput read and write random access.
