  • ADASS 2011 - Day 0

    A few notes from the GPU tutorial held on the Sunday before the start of the conference. GPUs in astronomy- better FL...and huge arithmetic intensityFFT, ~8x speed but ~1x artimetic intnesityRNGs, Monte-Carl...

  • ASKAP at the VLA

    This script will create a simulation of a mini-ASKAP telescope (I cut the antenna positions by a factor 4, so the maximum baseline is about 1.5 km or so) and put the array at the VLA...

  • Fast Calculation of the Lomb-Scargle Periodogram Using Graphics Processing Units

    I introduce a new code for fast calculation of the Lomb-Scargle periodogram, that leverages the computing power of graphics processing units (GPUs). After establishing a background to the newly emergent field of GPU computing, I discuss the code design and narrate the key parts of the source. Ben...
