Podcast: Scaling Gravity and Simulating Galaxies on Top Supercomputers

Nicole Hemsoth

Today we will be talking with Dr. Charlotte Christensen from the Department of Astronomy at the University of Arizona about simulating disc galaxy bulges using supercomputers at TACC and NASA Ames. We’ll discuss some of the large-scale simulation needs she and other astronomers have as well as discuss her use of the HPC systems at both locations.

For those interested in both the astronomy and the HPC angles, Charlotte’s team collaborated on a paper covering their simulation work, which can be found here: http://arxiv.org/pdf/1402.2702.pdf
