Fraunhofer SCAI publishes with LAMA 2.0 the next evolution of its high performance computing framework. It has grown from a linear algebra library to a multi-purpose programming framework.
By offering DSL-like C++-Syntax LAMA encourages writing of hardware-independent code. The framework allows the management of data on heterogeneous and distributed system architectures. These can range from embedded “System on a Chip” (aka SoC) devices to highly-parallel Supercomputers.
Consequently, LAMA offers full cluster support. Kernel management is provided with ready-to-use modules encapsulating interfaces to Intel® MKL and Nvidia® cuBLAS/cuSPARSE (targeting all multicore CPUs, Nvidia® GPUs, and Intel® Xeon® Phi™). For the purpose of extending LAMA, the framework supports the integration of custom modules.
Hence, it greatly facilitates the development of fast and scalable software for nearly every system on every scale. LAMA accelerates the time-to-market for new product developments significantly, reduces the time spent in maintaining existing code, and offers up-to-date hardware compatibility for even the latest architectures.
Typically, LAMA targets applications with needs in numerical mathematics (such as CFD and FEM simulation). Furthermore, LAMA 2.0 integrates methodology in the areas of optimization (e.g. for seismic imaging), computer vision, and deep learning.
It is available with an industry-friendly dual licensing model (AGPL for open source or individual agreements for other interests).

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
