This is the second in a series of articles describing a wide variety of projects at NIST that synergistically combine physical science and information science. It describes, through examples, how the Scientific Applications and Visualization Group (SAVG) at NIST has utilized high performance parallel computing, visualization, and machine learning to accelerate research. The examples include scientific collaborations in the following areas: (1) high precision energies for few electron atomic systems, (2) flows of suspensions, (3) x-ray absorption, (4) molecular dynamics of fluids, (5) nanostructures, (6) dendritic growth in alloys, (7) screen saver science, (8) genetic programming.
