During SC14 John Biddiscombe (CSCS) gave at the hpc-ch a ParaView demo of Bonsai running on Cray XC30 “Piz Daint” at CSCS. A galaxy simulation is rendered live in-situ on the GPUs of “Piz Daint” using the splotch renderer giving photorealistic images.
Hussein Harake (CSCS) and Brian Sparks (HPC Advisory Council) announced during SC14 the HPC Advisory Council Switzerland Conference 2015 in Lugano Convention Centre “Palazzo dei Congressi,” Lugano, Switzerland, from March 23 – March 25, 2015. The conference will focus on High-Performance Computing essentials, new developments and emerging technologies, best practices and hands-on training. The conference […]
Convergence Analysis of Monte Carlo Linear Solvers Using the Ulam-Von Neumann Algorithm: Necessary and Sufficient Conditions Prof. Michael Mascagni (Department of Computer Science, Florida State University) December 3, 15:30, ETH Zurich, HG E41 Abstract: In this talk we consider the Ulam-von Neumann Monte Carlo algorithm for solving linear systems via the Neumann series. The Ulam-von […]
The University of Basel, SIB and HPC-UGent (B) are organising a workshop on EasyBuild and Environment Modules (Lmod), with key contributors from Europe and USA.. EasyBuild is a software build and installation framework that allows you to manage (scientific) software on High Performance Computing (HPC) systems in an efficient way: EasyBuild and Lmod workshop: Mon […]
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 […]
