Computer simulations are important to many fields of research such as physics, chemistry and biology as well as many industry engineering and construction projects. Mr Playne investigated the nature of simulations to distill their key elements and how they can be easily defined. His research shows how these elements can be automatically translated into computer programs that run on modern parallel supercomputers. The main contribution of Mr Playne’s research lies in showing how this system can significantly reduce programmer effort without loss in performance.
