Prospects of supercomputer engineering development (based on lecture materials from MPAMCS-2012 in Dubna, August 27, 2012.)

Supercomputer performance has grown steadily and exponentially over the years, something that would have been impossible without periodic changes in their dominant architecture. Each of these has radically changed their use, in particular, in application programming. Today, with the appearance of heterogeneous hybrid-parallel architectures, the process of change in programming technologies has acquired a permanent character as the architecture has evolved. This poses a number of urgent problems for supercomputer applications.
