“In my own computational physics work,” says Granger, “a high-level description of the algorithm that goes into the paper is light years away from the details that are written in the code.
Without those details, there is no way that someone could reproduce it in a reasonable time scale.”

Now we have common ground; we can communicate to each other better. This accelerates our research”
