Strategic Programs for Innovative Research:
A program implemented to support the generation of world-leading research results by taking full advantage of the K computer, while building organizations to promote computational science and technology in each respective research field. For further details please see the following website:The RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science(AICS) (http://www.aics.riken.jp/en/over/domestic-and-international-partner-organizations.html)
Japan's Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.
 Smoothed-particle hydrodynamic simulation technique:
A method for representing fluid as a collection of particles. Suitable for analyzing the behavior of complex perturbations in the surface of water.
 Wave breaks:
Waves that penetrate from deep water to shallow areas increase in wave height as the water depth changes. As water depth approaches wave height, the shape of the wave becomes unstable, and the leading edge launches forward, a phenomenon known as "breaking."
 A 10,000-node supercomputer:
A 10,000-node supercomputer system would have roughly one-eighth the number of nodes as the K computer.
