Re: High Performance Computing

Well competing applications were written by quants in banks :)
More seriously we design DSL (Domain Specific Languages) compilers for every kind of application we target along with specialized hardware cores. So each DSL is focused on one task and does not needs to be general. For instance monte-carlo options pricing, feed handling, and gene sequencing don't need the same functions and data types. (The example given by Zach is done with the monte-carlo option pricing DSL compiler)
More on this at the ECLM 2008 ;-)
