Presented by Prof. Catherine CRESS on 10 Jul 2013 from 10:30 to 11:10
Type: Oral Presentation
Track: Track D1 - Astrophysics
I will summarize results from our recent studies in galaxy evolution and cosmology which utilized the supercomputing facilities at the CHPC. These include cosmological-scale N-body simulations as well as the study of the clustering of radio galaxies. I will also discuss the various roles that the CHPC is playing in Astronomy in SA, including the provision of HPC for a variety of Astronomical applications, the provision of storage for "Big Data", our educational programs and our participation in planning for the SKA.
