With the advent of massively parallel computers, the evolution of nonlinear dynamical systems such as fluids and plasmas is being investigated in three dimensions at increasingly high resolutions. Today a typical physical volume is represented by [Formula Omitted] grid points, and we may expect the resolution to increase to [Formula Omitted] by the end of the decade. Highâ€�performance computers that allow users to visualize and diagnose numerical simulations and interact with them rapidly are boosting scientific productivity in the study of complex and turbulent systems.
