Breakthroughs in Astrophysics Enabled by NVIDIA GPU Technology
Abstract:
The vast scales and complex physics of the universe pose a significant challenge for understanding how galaxies form and evolve. Theoretical astrophysicists attempt to model the physical processes that drive the formation of galaxies and other structures via supercomputer simulations, but the fidelity of these simulations are limited by computational power. With the advent of supercomputers powered by NVIDIA GPUs, astrophysical simulations have taken giant strides forward in their ability to model and understand the detailed properties of galaxies. I review some of our progress enabled by NVIDIA GPUs, including large-scale GPU-powered hydrodynamical simulations and Deep Learning applied to enormous astronomical surveys of galaxies.
