Computer is now indispensable tool in the modern life, and in the modern sciences and technologies. In the statistical physics, exponentially growing numerical ability of computer has been cultivating the understanding of many body systems. Throughout the last few decades, simulation scale has been growing with the pace of ten times at every four years. If we assume this pace, the simulation scale will reach the Avogadro's number in the first half of this century. Then our computing study will go beyond just to simulate natural phenomena, but it will reach to emulate them.
