Simplifying access to High-Performance Galaxy Modelling
Using software support resources acquired under the 2017B semester of the ADACS Software Support scheme, ADACS has enabled an outward-facing user interface for GBKFIT: a publicly-available application for kinematic galaxy modelling. Features include a range of accepted data inputs (including flux, velocity, and velocity dispersion maps, as well as spectral cubes) and kinematic models (including exponential, flat, arctan, Epinat, and more), all wrapped in a secured web application (including a relational database and workflow management system) enabling providing support for a rich user community.
Speeding-up Reionization with GPUs
Using software support resources acquired under the 2017B semester of the ADACS Software Support scheme, Dr. Simon Mutch of the University of Melbourne has partnered with ADACS in the effort to supply accurate theoretical models capable of predicting the progression of this transition, and of interpreting these exciting observations once they become available.
