Shooting for the Stars with GPUs
Abstract:
Come and learn how GPUs can help discovering the most distant galaxies by performing close to real-time simulations at an unprecedented scale of the multi-object adaptive optics technique (MOAO). The European Southern Observatory (ESO) is leading the construction of the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT), a 39m diameter telescope, to provide Europe with the biggest eye on the universe ever built. MOA is the most complex adaptive optics concept proposed for the E-ELT and simulating the instrument at full scale is extremely compute-intensive. The tomographic reconstructor (TR) is one of the core components of both the design simulations and eventually system operations and it requires the inversion of a large dense covariance matrix.
