you are given to hyperbole. the massive domains I'm thinking of
are cosmology and explicit quantum condensed-matter calculations.
the experts in those fields I talk to both do use massive computation
and do not expect much benefit from GPUs.

no. you are equating "uses lots of ram" with "uses memoization".

nevermind I said anything. I'd forgotten about your style.
