Simulation of LISA-type craft in orbit near Earth in 2035 CE

An higher resolution image of numerically determined gravitational potentials around the four Earth-Sun Lagrange Points. L1, L2, L3 are correctly characterized as "saddle point" or transition areas. L4 and L5 are better characterized as "ridge lines" that fall off from single point or "peak" similar to Mauna Loa on Hawai`i .  the single LISA Pathefinder was placed at L1, while future …

Thunderbolt 2 virtual bridging with small, efficient nodes in iMac-based parallel processing clusters for orbital dynamics or laser/antenna design

One of the first mini iMac-based parallel clusters for numeric solution of n-body problems based exclusively on Thunderbolt 2 virtual bridging, made possible through the patience and knowledge of Experimac's employees Kelli and Bré. Now a 3-node parallel cluster with 8 cores we will add a fourth node and 2 cores next week. Three Intel …
