Understanding the dynamics of killer electrons in Earth’s radiation belts: a synthesis of high-performance computing, data assimilation, and physics-based modeling

October 28, 2015 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Speaker: Dr. Adam C. Kellerman, Researcher, Earth, Planetary, and Space Sciences University of California, Los Angeles Abstract: The Van Allen radiation belts are torii-shaped regions of trapped energetic particles, that in recent years, have become a principle focus for satellite operators and engineers. During geomagnetic storms, electrons can be accelerated up to relativistic energies, where they can penetrate spacecraft shielding and damage electrical systems, causing permanent damage or loss of spacecraft. In addition, the high-energy particles can be dangerous for…

National Leadership Class Computing Resources and Opportunities for UCLA Researchers

May 5, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Kerckhoff – Charles E. Young Grand Salon, 308 Westwood Plaza
Los Angeles, 90095 United States

UCLA-IDRE has an impressive Hoffman2 computing infrastructure. It has grown from an initial 256 cores to the current 12,000+ cores in a short span of time. It serves a large number of research scientists and enables them to achieve new heights within their computing research. However, there are limitations. It may fall short of ever increasing computing needs that require extremely large parallel scaling, jumbo size memory on a single node, or considerable number of systems for analysis using high…

IDRE Tech Talk: Building and Linking Local Regional and National Cyberinfrastructure

December 3, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Louisiana researchers and universities have been involved in a concentrated, collaborative effort to advance state-wide cyberinfrastructure: computing systems, data storage systems, advanced instruments and data repositories, visualization environments, and people, all linked together by software and high performance networks. This effort led to a set of interlinked projects that started making a significant difference to the state and created an environment that encouraged increased collaboration. Part of this environment included participation in the US National TeraGrid infrastructure, and US National…

Improving the Energy Efficiency of Modern Computing Platforms Using High-Resolution Real-Time Energy Measurements

July 17, 2014 @ 12:00 am - 2:00 pm
53-125 Engineering IV, UCLA

Dr. Digvijay Singh will speak. Abstract: Rising energy requirements in a broad range of computing platforms from mobile devices to server systems combined with the proliferation of these high-performance computing platforms has lead to an exigent need for improvement in platform energy efficiency. This requires infrastructure for monitoring of platform energy consumption and methods to reduce the energy costs. In this talk, we present an energy measurement infrastructure that provides high-resolution real-time energy measurements for a commodity computing platform. The…
