Introduction to High Performance Computing (HPC) for Astrophysicists
Time & Location:
MW 10-1130A, 131B CAMPBELL
This course will provide an introduction to Unix targeting shell scripting, makefiles, compilers, revision control systems, etc., and the working environment on an HPC system at the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC). Students will be given accounts at NERSC in order to gain experience running a variety of current parallel codes in astrophysics and handling both the resultant large data sets generated by these simulations as well as observational data sets through NERSC’s Science Gateway Nodes.
