Nuclear collisions and data grid for the physics community

The aim of the project is to investigate nuclear matter at high temperatures and pressure using the CHPC for large-scale calculations, hydrodynamic modelling simulations and data analysis. The specific case of simulation and analysis of high energy nuclear physics data has been selected due to the experience of the three groups involved in performing this work, the UCT-CERN Research Centre (University of Cape Town), and iThemba LABS, as well as the suitability of this field of science for the investigation of high-energy physics. The consortium will also assist the CHPC in promoting the development of GRID in South Africa by implementing GRID computing workshops. They will furthermore promote the usage of GRIDS in all other scientific disciplines.
