Top 20 application on fastest supercomputer: iPIC3D on Tianhe-II!

Giovanni Lapenta and collaborators received great news in China: the effort  "iPic3D modeling of 3D magnetic reconnection” has been selected among 1600 applications one of the top 20 best applications that run on the world fastest supercomputer Tianhe-II in China! More info is found in:
