Abstract

<p>Scripting has accelerated and simplified programming by focusing on the composition of existing codes to form more powerful applications. Parallel scripting makes it possible to quickly develop highly parallel applications that run efficiently on a 16‐core workstation, a 16,000‐core cluster, or a 160,000‐core petascale system.</p>
