Scientists are using Piz Daint’s graphics processors to simulate the Milky Way at an unprecedented resolution and visualize the results in real time. November 19, 2014 – by Simone Ulmer In Bonsai – the N-body gravitational tree-code – Simon Portegies Zwart’s team from Leiden University has a code that runs optimally on graphics processors. The […]
Supernovae are exploding stars. The light from the explosion and its remnants enable numerous conclusions to be drawn about the former star. To this day, however, it has not been possible to explain how these stellar explosions come about. Astrophysicist Matthias Liebendörfer from the University of Basel and his colleagues are getting to the bottom […]
CSCS is pleased to announce a 2-day training course on Practical Performance Analysis of Parallel Applications which will take place at CSCS in Lugano on 6-7 October, 2014. The course will be delivered as a series of presentations with associated hands-on practical exercises using the Piz Daint Cray XC30 system. It starts with basic application […]
