The Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics runs huge computing facilities in Potsdam-Golm and Hannover. The Hannover facilities provide computing power for analysis tasks, in which gravitational-wave detector data are searched for astrophysical signals. The facilities in Potsdam-Golm are used for complex numerical simulations as well as for gravitational wave data analysis.
Einstein@Home uses idle computing time donated by volunteers all around the world to search for weak astrophysical signals from spinning neutron stars using data from the LIGO gravitational-wave detectors, the Arecibo radio telescope, and the Fermi gamma-ray satellite. [more]
