The World of 3D Web Visualisation

The summer in Italy is not seeming to end but my stay here does. In my last post I showcased my work which was by that time almost done. From then, the looks didn’t change much, only the underlying stuff

Quality measure comparison of Slovenian landscape and iterative methods

Since in the last entry I promised that I am going to talk about the comparison between the fixed point method and the projected gradient method I will dwell on this. But first of all, let me show you some of

Which is the busiest node in the HPC cluster

What is a high-performance computer (HPC)? In simple terms, nowadays it is a cluster of innumerous ‘mini’ computers (nodes) interlinked by the same network. When a big calculation is submitted to the HPC, it will be fragmented into thousands of
