The ASC-Alliance Projects: A Case Study of Large-Scale Parallel Scientific Code Development
March 2008 (vol. 41 no. 3)
pp. 50-58

Computational scientists face many challenges when developing software that runs on large-scale parallel machines. However, software-engineering researchers haven't studied their software development processes in much detail. To better understand the nature of software development in this context, the authors examined five large-scale computational science software projects operated at the five ASC-Alliance centers.
