Abstract:
Learn how GPU computing is enabling astrophysicists to study our closest star. NASA''s recently launched Solar Dynamics Observatory is continuously streaming full-disk images of the Sun at visible, UV and EUV wavelengths. This presentation will discuss ways that GPU computing is helping scientists cope with the analysis of the immense data volumes as well as in numerical modeling of the Sun.
