Code Speedup Strengthens Researchers’ Grasp of Neutrons

18 agosto 2015

Scientists have simulated clusters of neutrons called «neutron drops» to understand their properties better. The ab initio calculations, or calculations based on fundamental forces and principles, were performed on the Titan supercomputer. Leveraging Titan’s massive memory and computing power, the team was able to determine the ground-state energies and other properties of systems of up to 40 neutrons.
