Everyone knows applications drive the HPC (High Performance Computing) boat. It is one thing to run benchmarks and burn-in programs, but when it is time for production work, applications take over. Fortunately, there are many applications that can take advantage of clusters.

These applications can range from small (using several nodes) to massive (use several thousand nodes). There are many application in the "MPI space" (Message Passing Interface) and cataloging them is too big a task for this article. It is possible, however, to highlight some popular applications in several HPC vertical areas. Such a listing may start as a jumping off point for those interested in learning more about HPC clusters in their specific domain. It is also important to remember that the HPC application space is quite vast. Thus, those interested in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) probably have no interest in Molecular Dynamics (MD), and many of the words, abbreviations, and acronyms may seem a bit strange.
