Description

This workshop follows the Rayleigh Tutorial. Participants should have attended the tutorial or have basic knowledge of the code. The workshop lays the foundation in establishing the open source project. Participants are expected to contribute to the code during the workshop and participate in discussions on future directions.

Technical Requirements

To participate fully in the workshop, participants should have a basic knowledge of scientific Python and bring with them a reasonably modern laptop with Python 3.x and Matplotlib installed (4GB of ram preferred).

Rayleigh is written primarily in Fortran and, optionally, employs simple C++ libraries for directory creation at runtime. In addition, Rayleigh depends on several commonly used external libraries. If you wish to install and run Rayleigh locally, you will need to install the following on your system prior to the workshop.

  • Fortran compiler (tested GNU, Intel, and IBM)
  • C++ compiler (Optional; tested GNU and Intel)
  • BLAS
  • LAPack
  • FFTW (version 3.x or higher)
  • MPI (for Fortran)
  • Optional: Intel's MKL library provides interfaces to LAPack, BLAS, and FFTW3. A single MKL installation may be used in place of those three, separately installed libraries.
