Supercomputers for Beginners - Part III. GPU-Accelerated Computing

Many TOP500 supercomputers today use both CPUs and GPUs to give the best of both worlds: GPU processing to perform mathematically intensive computations on very large data sets, and CPUs to run the operating system and perform traditional serial tasks. CPU-GPU collaboration is necessary to achieve high-performance computing.

Broadband Seismic Technology and Beyond PART VII: CGG’s BroadSeis - A Change of Thinking

As geophysicists, we learnt and believed that seismic deghosting through ghost notches in pressure-only recordings was impossible when the sensors were deep. CGG changed that way of thinking. Instead of fighting the ghost in acquisition, they made a different set of rules to fully exploit ‘notch diversity’ in data processing and imaging.
