Submission + - Algorithm Predicts New Superhard Materials (scienceblog.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Researchers in New York have developed an algorithm that can predict new superhard materials — a relatively small class of compounds of which diamond is the most famous. Beyond the pluses this represents for, say, the drilling industry, the physicists claim say their computational approach can be used to think up new materials of all sorts. “New materials with desired properties will be routinely discovered using supercomputers," they say, "instead of the expensive trial-and-error method that is used today.”
