CHPC Resources Aid Study of Massive Galaxies

University of Utah astronomers are using CHPC parallel computing resources to study galaxy evolution and cosmology. Adam Bolton, assistant professor in the department of Physics and Astronomy, and his research group are members of the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS) project within the international Sloan Digital Sky Survey III (SDSS-III) collaboration.  BOSS is currently building the largest ever three-dimensional map of galaxies using a 2.5-meter telescope at Apache Point Observatory (APO) in New Mexico.  Researchers are measuring the statistical patterns within this map in order to understand the nature of the mysterious “dark energy” that seems to be accelerating the expansion rate of the universe. Kyle Dawson, another member of the University’s Department of Physics and Astronomy, is also heavily involved in the BOSS project.
