2018 Rayleigh Tutorial and Workshop
2018 Rayleigh Workshop
I. Tutorial: September 15
II. Development Workshop: September 16-19
University of Colorado
The 2018 Rayleigh Workshop will be held at the University of Colorado following GTP 2018. Rayleigh is designed for the study of MHD turbulence and convection in spherical (and soon Cartesian) geometries using a pseudo-spectral approach and runs efficiently on O(10^5) cores. The software is freely available and may be downloaded from its CIG software page [download].
The workshop consists of TWO SEPARATE EVENTS:
I. TUTORIAL: 15 September 2018.
The Introduction to Rayleigh Workshop will introduce new users to running the Rayleigh code.
Limit: 25 participants.
II. DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP: 16-19 September 2018.
The Rayleigh Development Workshop will:
- Introduce current users to the parallel design and algorithmic structure of Rayleigh so that they may modify the code effectively.
- Establish collaborations on short-term development tasks. For example, such tasks might include the design of robust methods for reading in custom reference-state profiles, implementation of new diagnostic outputs, development of data visualization pipelines and routines, and improvement of documentation.
- Establish work flows for contributing to the repository.
- Establish a core-development team that is authorized to approve changes to the code moving forward.
- Establish long-term objectives for the continued development of Rayleigh.
Limit: 20 participants
You can apply to attend one or both events.
REGISTRATION IS CLOSED. Please email us to check on space availability.
