A short tour of lattice QCD

As my first blog was completely non technical I am now contractually obliged by the powers that be to talk about some technical stuff of what I am actually doing. I decided I would have a go at explaining what lattice

A Matryoshka linear solver

As I described in my previous posts, solving a linear system in a lattice QCD applications can be a very long process. We really want to optimize this linear solver, so we can find some answers about matter in our

Linear solvers are behind lattice QCD

In my first post I told you about the wonders of lattice QCD, and I explained why we need supercomputing to actually solve problems involving very small particles. I told you about huge machines that can do in one second

From Juelich to Nicosia with Love

As Ambra covered most of the technicalities of what we are working on here in Cyprus in her wonderful blog on lattice QCD and supercomputers. I will talk more about our experiences so far in Jülich, Germany where we had

First Impressions of Nicosia

As a pleasant consequence of having a connecting flight in Munich, we flew over the Austrian Alps on the way to Cyprus. I was lucky enough to be sitting in a window seat. It was definitely something special to see

Getting Started

Upon arrival on Saturday in Cyprus, Conor and I were greeted by blue sky, palm trees, and 36 degrees temperature. Thanks to our colleague, Stelios, who picked us up from the airport, we made it from Larnaka to Nicosia with
