Re: High Performance Computing
Which language do you compile from? Your comment above suggests that it is Lisp, but it would have to be a subset of Common Lisp, right? Beating C/C++ with two orders of magnitude sounds like a tall order, unless the C/C++ applications were written by physicists :-)
It would also be nice to see some detail about the compiler like how its organized, optimizations, design of the intermediate code, its speed.
