Exploring Explosive Star Scenarios with 3D Simulations

Stony Brook University researchers are exploring the physics of Type Ia supernovas using the Tesla-accelerated Titan Supercomputer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. It’s been estimated that Type Ia supernovas can be used to calculate distances to within 10 percent accuracy, good enough to … Read more

GPUs Accelerating Higher Energy Exploration at CERN

CERN is upgrading the LHC (Large Hadron Collider), which is the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator ever built, to explore the new high-energy frontier. A researcher describes how his team is working to increase the luminosity of beam dynamics with GPUs. The most technically challenging … Read more
