2018 Rayleigh Hackathon

Category: Hackathon
Description:

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.

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

When: Saturday 15 September, 2018 11:00 pm MDT - Wednesday 19 September, 2018 10:59 pm MDT
Where: Boulder, Colorado
