Comet, a new petascale supercomputer at San Diego Supercomputing Center (SDSC), is one of the latest key resources within the NSF’s XSEDE (Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment) program, which comprises the most advanced collection of integrated digital resources and services in the world. Researchers may apply for "free" computer time on Comet via XSEDE. UCLA-IDRE and SDSC are organizing this workshop in order to introduce the Comet system and its usage for HPC and Big Data Analytics to UCLA…

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
5628 Math Science Building,

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…

Python for High Performance Computing – Part 2

October 26, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
5907 Math Sciences Building,

New time: 2-4pm, October 26 New Location: 5628 Math Sciences Building Python, originally developed as a general purpose programming language, has gained its popularity in the scientific community in recently years owning to its elegant and easy- to-understand syntax and powerful libraries. Python fully supports both functional and object-oriented programming styles. This class will present a number useful features of Python in the context of scientific computing, and introduce a number of supporting packages, including numpy for array-based computations and…
