Funding and Support

The research of the group is supported by the hosting institutions, and a number of grants.

Computing resources

  • Through an ongoing collaboration with Paolo Padoan we have access to the Pleiades installation at NASA/Ames
  • In September 2016 we were granted 22 million core-hours at the Marconi supercomputer through PRACE.
  • In March 2014 we were granted 10 million core-hours at the CURIE supercomputer through PRACE.
  • In March 2013 we were granted a project with what is probably the largest high performance computing allocation ever given to Danish researchers (75 million core-hours, or the equivalent of 8.500 computing cores working continuously for a year) through PRACE, the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe.
  • Together with the other astrophysics groups at the University of Copenhagen, we use on a daily basis the resources at the local High Performance Computing center. Our resources include 169 nodes with 3000 cores, 78 Xeon-Phi accelerators and 120 GPUs for computing, and 5 analysis servers with 32-48 cores and up to 768GB memory per server. This is complemented with nearly a petabyte of storage.
