Supercomputing on smartphones... New app came

The new software works in cases where the general form of a problem is known, but not the particulars. It has slider bars that allow users to set the values for which they want the problems solved.
Researchers in MIT's Department of Mechanical Engineering have developed software that can perform complex calculations in seconds on an ordinary smartphone that might otherwise be performed on a supercomputer. Although the software is for demonstration only, but it could pave the way for applications that let engineers perform complicated calculations in the field using their smartphones.
Although the phone requires a supercomputer to derive these initial equations, after that the phone would have the ability to execute them to a close approximation. According to the developers of the application, there are certain complex calculations that need to be performed in the field. While the general parameters of an equation might be known to them, they might not know certain specific measurements. These specific measurements will be entered into the smartphone.

Since the mathematical models on which these calculations rely apparently take up very little memory, many of such models can be stored, and any additional models can be downloaded from the field.

The software is available for download and it comes preloaded with models for nine problems. These problems include heat propagation in objects of several different shapes, fluid flow around a spherical obstacle, and the effects of forces applied to a cracked pillar.

Technologies replace each other so fast that whether the gadget is latest,becomes difficult to say.But,this is how options become available and the customer gets bargaining power.
