News!!! Gravity group granted 25 million computing hours
A collaboration lead by Roberto De Pietri has been awarded 25,000,000 core hours on the CINECA Fermi supercomputer for the project 3DMagRoI : High-resolution 3D study of MRI in relativistic rotating stars as part of the 6th EU regular PRACE call.
The Numerical Relativity group at Parma University is involved in the numerical simulation of Einstein's Equation and with the modeling of compact objects, such as neutron stars and black holes.
Our research greatly benefit from various community software development targeting the numerical simulation of Einstein's equations. Among them a special mention are deserved to the CACTUS code, CARPET code and, especially, the WHISKY code.
The Numerical relativity group at Parma university was set up on April 2004 and it is composed by three members. It has active collaborations with Roma University, the Turin Polytechnical Institute, the Trieste "Scuola Internazionale di Studi Superiori Avanzati" (SISSA) and the "Albert Einstein Institute" of the Max Planck in Golm (Germany). The group is also an active member of VESF (Virgo Ego Scientific Forum).
Main events hosted by the Gravity group
On September 7th-9th, 2011, the group organized the first edition of the Parma Workshop on NumRel & GWs.
On April 7th-8th, 2008, the group organized the 2008 edition of the Whisky Retreat to discuss about the future of Whisky.
