ENIAC forecast run on a cell-phone:
A program to integrate the barotropic vorticity equation (BVE) has
been written in Java ME (J2ME), and one of the forecasts originally
run on the ENIAC has been run on a Nokia 6300 cell-phone. The
24-hour forecast executes in less than a second.
The implementation of the J2ME program phoniac.jar on a cell phone
is described in
Peter Lynch & Owen Lynch, 2008:
Forecasts by PHONIAC.
Weather, 63, 324-326.
in College Bulletin, UCD College of Engineering,
Mathematical & Physical Sciences, June, 2008 (includes a Limerick).
