Okeanos supercomputer has started

On June 20, we took part in the session devoted to the results of preliminary runs within the “Early Science” programme, held by the Interdisciplinary Center for Mathematical Modeling of the Warsaw University.

Our binary black hole mergers simulations, as well as the modeling of black hole accretion flows and shocks, are now computed on the new Okeanos machine in ICM. This supercomputer is located in the new Technology Center of the ICM, and is composed of more than a thousand of 24-core nodes. The machine is devoted to massive large-scale computations.
