These are materials from the 2022 Cal State Fullerton Workshop on High-Performance Computing and Gravitational Waves.
The workshop is scheduled to be held at Cal State Fullerton, hosted by Nicholas and Lee Begovich Center for Gravitational-Wave Physics and Astronomy, on August 15, 2022 – August 19, 2022. The workshop is planned to be held in person in McCarthy Hall room 629 (campus map), but if necessary because of COVID-19, we will switch to an online format.
Notebook to explore data from SXS Catalog of simulations of merging black holes - This notebook will let you interact with data from different simulations in the SXS Catalog. It will show you how to make plots of the black-hole masses, and it will show you how to plot and turn into a sound the emitted gravitational waves.
The following students from Citrus College participated in the workshop. Click to see participants’ visualization of the head-on colliding black holes that they simulated on our local high-performance computing cluster, Ocean.
Our students toured the campus data center on Thursday during the workshop, standing in front of the Ocean cluster:
