In this video from PASC18, Constantia Alexandrou from the University of Cyprus discusses her domain of expertise – quantum chromodynamics. Thanks to Rich Brueckner from insideHPC Media Publications for recording the video.
In this video from PASC18, Tessa Carver from the University of Geneva presents: Neutrino Telescope Data Management and Analysis. “(i) The Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) will be the world’s largest and most sensitive high-energy gamma-ray observatory. Composed of more than 100 telescopes of different sizes between 4 and 23 meters in diameter, it will operate […]
In this video from PASC18, Salvatore Vitale from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology presents: Methods and Challenges in the Characterization of Gravitational-Wave Sources. “Advanced gravitational-wave detectors have so far detected signals emitted by the coalescence of two neutron stars or two black holes. Their astrophysical (masses, spins) and extrinsic (position, orientation) parameters have been estimated […]
In this video from PASC18, Sascha Husa from the University of the Balearic Islands presents: Numerical Relativity and its Applications for the Modeling of Gravitational Waves. “The optimally efficient detection of gravitational wave events, and the robust identification of the sources of such events rely on accurate models of the gravitational wave signals for astrophysically […]
In this video from PASC18, Andrew P. Lundgren from the University of Portsmouth presents: Data Quality for Gravitational-Wave Detectors. “Gravitational-wave detectors are extremely complicated and unprecedentedly sensitive machines. We monitor many thousands of sensors and control systems to detect any hardware problems, electronics failures, noise from the environment, and all the many other subtle issues […]
