Max-Planck-Institute for Gravitational Physics, Albert-Einstein-Institute

The Albert-Einstein-Institute (AEI) is one of the world-leading institutes in the research field of gravitational wave astronomy.

Research topics that are brought into D-Grid include:

Computing Resources:
  • Peyote: 128 dual-processor nodes
  • Computing time allocations on HPC resources at various German supercomputing centres (RZG, LRZ and ZIB), via Center for Computation and Technology (CCT) in Louisiana also at various US-american HPC centres (NCSA, PSC, NERSC, CCT LSU)
Simulation framework Cactus:
  • one of the world-leading Application Frameworks in the HPC and Grid Computing research field
  • already integrated prototype grid capabilities for distributed computing
  • monitoring and interactive steering of grid simulations; remote visualisation of high-volume hierarchical datasets
Involvement in international Grid activities:
