2019 Rayleigh Hackathon

22-26 July 2019

University of Colorado, Boulder

Boulder, CO


Rayleigh is designed for the study of MHD turbulence and convection in spherical (and soon Cartesian) geometries using a pseudo-spectral approach and runs efficiently on O(10^5) cores.  The software is freely available and may be downloaded from its CIG software page [download].

The majority of the time will be spent working on the code in an informal setting, individually or in small groups.  Participants should have basic knowledge of the code and applicable coding languages. Participants are expected to contribute to the code during the workshop and participate in discussions on future directions. See Technical Requirements.
