Abstract:In this document we present a scientific rationale for XSEDE. We begin with some general arguments. These are followed by fifteen examples of concrete scientific projects (we could have presented many more) whose progress is dependent on the services that XSEDE will provide. We then give further examples of how XSEDE’s interoperability with other national and international CIs will also advance science. We also point out that scientific advance is contingent on a very cyber-literate workforce and briefly discuss how both TEOS and AUSS are structured to develop and assist that workforce. This is followed by some general observations on the transformational aspects of XSEDE. Many XSEDE features are designed to enhance user productivity. The obvious premise is that increased productivity leads to more science. And although the borderline is fuzzy, increased productivity is sometimes the difference between a practical project and an impractical one.
