PACS-CS computer

We aim to advance studies with full lattice QCD simulation including the vacuum polarization effects of all three light quarks, i.e., up, down, and strange, using the massively parallel cluster computer PACS-CS whose development started in 2005 and is scheduled to go into operation in 2006. Combining the increased computing power provided by PACS-CS with the recent algorithmic advances, we aim to achieve significant progress in the three major issues of lattice QCD, i.e., elucidation of the properties of hadrons and their structure, establishment of the Standard Model including CP violation, and understanding quark gluon plasma at high temperatures and/or densities, thus placing a landmark in the effort toward clarification and establishment of the theory of the strong interactions based on the first principles of QCD which have been pursued since early 1980's.
