New GCS Large-Scale Projects at JSC
Twice a year, the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) issues a call for large-scale projects on its petascale supercomputers JUQUEEN (JSC), HERMIT (HLRS), and SuperMUC (LRZ). Projects are classified as large-scale if they require more than 35 million core hours.
After the last call, seven projects achieved the status of large-scale project on JUQUEEN, with a total of about 380 million core hours being awarded. One project from the field of chemistry, submitted by Prof. Dominik Marx (Ruhr-Universität Bochum), deals with prebiotic peptide synthesis. The second project is from the field of astrophysics, submitted by Dr. Hubert Klahr (MPI for Astronomy, Heidelberg), and simulates planet formation. Another project, from condensed matter physics, submitted by Dr. Jens Harting (University of Stuttgart), simulates complex fluids and their flow through porous media. The project headed by Prof. Jörg Schumacher (Technische Universität Ilmenau) is from the field of fluid dynamics and analyses strong fluctuations in turbulent convection. Three projects are from the field of high-energy physics, submitted by Dr. Stephan Duerr, Prof. Zoltan Fodor, and Dr. Christian Hoelbling (all from the University of Wuppertal), and all involve investigating various aspects of hadronic properties in lattice QCD.
