The NGS at the centre of the universe?

I've recently been working on a number of case studies with several NGS users to highlight the different ways that the NGS is used in many different research areas.

The first case study from this batch has recently been released and is now available on the NGS website case study section. This case study highlights the work of Cristiano Sabiu from the University of Portsmouth who used the NGS to analyse the distribution of galaxies in the universe.

Cristiano made use of the freely available Gadget2 code which is installed on the NGS STFC RAL site and ran 20 full scale simulations which required approximately 100,000 cpu hours.

To find out more about Cristianos research see our user case study page. More user case studies are in the pipeline so watch this space!
