High Performance Computing with Wenming Ye

Wenming works just down the hallway from us on Channel 9 exploring the possibilities of HPC (High Performance Computing). I wanted Niners to meet Wenming and see some of the interesting projects he's working on and find out how the cloud has changed supercomputing. 

This week Wenming is at

Differential Equation Model
This video explains how a function can be modeled using a differential equation if it is growing or shrinking exponentially.  In the differential equation model, k is a constant that determines if the function is growing or shrinking.  If k is greater than 1, the function is growing.  If it is less than 1, the function is shrinking.  (2:20)

"The Idea of Order at Key West" by Wallace Stevens (poetry reading)
One can gain insight into what poets are trying to convey from listening to them read their poems. Most poets read with a conspicuous mannerism which, I suggest, mimics a pattern of speech they heard in early life that had a powerful influence on them. In Bukowski's work, for instance, I'm sure I hear the dismissive, jeering voice of his abusive father. Wallace Stevens reads with a "dying fall", as though he's casting a spell - somewhat like a preacher reading a lesson. Listen to Wallace S

Quatre siècles plus tard, en ce début 2000, quelle réponse apporte la science à cette question ?

Pouvoir dominical et christianisation dans la société esclavagiste (Guadeloupe, Martinique, XVIIe-
Selon l'article 2 du code noir, les esclaves doivent être baptisés et instruits. La christianisation est-elle ainsi un élément structurant ou une force potentiellement déstabilisatrice du système colonial ? La position des pouvoirs publics évoluent selon les périodes. Au début, la religion justifie l'esclavage afin de sauver les âmes des déportés. Puis, elle assoie le système colonial en promettant l'espérance d'une vie meilleure dans l'au-delà afin de contenir les esclaves. Enfin
