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…

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…
