Center for Computational Relativity and Gravitation
The Center for Computational Relativity and Gravitation (CCRG) is a research center at the Rochester Institute of Technology. It comprises faculty, postdoctoral research associates and students working in the areas of computational general relativity, gravitational waves, relativistic astrophysics, and galaxy dynamics. It was founded in 2007 within the School of Mathematical Sciences then headed by Sophia Maggelakis.
Faculty members currently include Hans-Peter Bischof, Joshua Faber, Manuela Campanelli (Director), Carlos Lousto, David Merritt, John Whelan and Yosef Zlochower.
Computing facilities in the CCRG include gravitySimulator, a 32-node computer that uses special-purpose GRAPE hardware to achieve speeds of 4Tflops in gravitational N-body calculations; and NewHorizons, a 104-node Linux cluster with dual-processor (dual-core) per node and a total of 1.4 Tbytes of on-board memory.
The mission of the CCRG is "to promote excellence in research and education, and to advance discovery beyond the frontiers of current knowledge in key research areas of computational astrophysics, gravitational physics, high-performance computing and scientific visualization."
