This workshop will provide an introduction to Rayleigh, an efficiently parallel, pseudo-spectral convection code for spherical and cartesian geometries. An overview of the underlying physics, the parallelization, and performance expectations on different architectures will be provided. Following the overview, participants will gain hands-on experience in building and running the code, modifying the code, and visualizing output.
1. Basic knowledge of scientific Python.
2. A reasonably modern laptop with Python 2.6x and Matplotlib installed (4GB of ram preferred)
3. Rayleigh is written in primarily in Fortran and, optionally, employs simple C++ libraries for directory creation at runtime. In addition, Rayleigh depends on several commonly used external libraries. Please install the following on your system prior to the tutorial.
