China Top Ranked Universities: China has seen a huge surge in the number of students attending universities (http://www.asiaecon.org/exclusives/ex_read/19).   “As of right now, the number of students studying in Chinese universities has reached 25 million, which is an astonishing five-fold increase in only nine years, reported the Chinese Education Minister, Zhou Ji.”  The number of top ranked universities in China is increasing.  We noted the correlation between % of WW GDP and % of top-500-ranked universities in a previous blog post (http://www.arwu.org/ARWUAnalysis2009.jsp).   There is also evidence starting to accumulate about the importance of SuperComputing and High-Performance-Computing (HPC) to both university rankings and national GDP.    The HPC numbers for China are also becoming more and more impressive http://www.itworld.com/hardware/109473/china-flexes-supercomputing-muscle-top-500-rankings?source=ITWNLE_nlt_today_2010-05-3
