Zippy supercomputer helps UAH solar scientists answer questions


Jun 3, 2014

Talk about a mathematics hot rod – how does 13 quadrillion calculations per second grab you? A scalable computer code developed at The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) that efficiently uses supercomputing power, plus important areas of UAH scientific inquiry, landed scientists at the Department of Space Science and Center for Space Plasma and Aeronomic Research (CSPAR) in the driver's seat for a highly sought chance to run complex equations on a blisteringly fast supercomputer. The UAH effort using the Cray Blue Waters supercomputer supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the University of Illinois, where it is located, resulted in advances in understanding solar wind and the heliosphere.

UAH Researchers’ Supercomputer Simulations Shed Light on the Heliospheric Interface


Apr 3, 2018

Dr. Nikolai Pogorelov is a professor in UAH’s Department of Space Science and a researcher with UAH’s Center for Space Plasma and Aeronomic Research. His co-authored paper shows that the disruption of the heliopause can be attributed to magnetohydrodynamic instability, possibly accompanied by magnetic reconnection.
