These DEISA Extreme Computing (DECI) projects will each have access to resources at one or more of the 11 DEISA partner sites, including 12 of the Top 100 most powerful supercomputers in the world. Through DECI, now in its fourth year, scientists are tackling a wide range of scientific challenges.
Successful projects are chosen for their potential to achieve ground-breaking scientific results through the use of supercomputers, enabling them to run more detailed and accurate simulations of scientific problems than was previously possible. Multi-national proposals are especially encouraged and the latest projects to be supported include collaborations involving scientists from three continents, although the vast majority of the participants are based in Europe.
Staff from DEISA will work closely with the researchers, providing applications support to enable and deploy the codes on the most appropriate architecture.
Alison Kennedy, Coordinator of DECI said, “DEISA is delighted to be able to provide compute resources and applications enabling assistance to such a wide range of researchers in so many innovative projects. It’s very exciting to see the impact that DECI has in advancing scientific knowledge and competitiveness in Europe.”
Professor Gernot Muenster, the Principal Investigator of the Nf1 DECI project to study fundamental issues in quantum field theory said, "In order to attain the goals of our project and to arrive at conclusive results, we need computational resources which exceed our previous approvals. Thanks to DEISA, we will be able to perform simulations in sufficiently large lattice volumes and sufficiently small lattice spacings to obtain relevant results. Also, the support of our calculations by DEISA staff members, concerning implementation and optimization of our program codes, is of very high value for our project."
Professor Simon Portegies Zwart, the Principal Investigator of the Gravitational Billion Body Problem (GBBP) DECI project related to cosmological studies on Cold Dark Matter said, "Thanks to the available compute resources and the excellent network facilities of DEISA we can now make a breakthrough in computational science, especially in our understanding of the dark matter distribution in the Universe".

RNA: a vicious pathway to cancer ?

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.
As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...
Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.
Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...
For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.
While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...
An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.
The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...
A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
