Gravitational Wave search GPU App version

April 11, 2014

Due to the excellent work of our French volunteer Christophe Choquet we finally have a working OpenCL version of the Gravitational Wave search ("S6CasA") application. Thank you Christophe!

This App version is currently considered 'Beta' and being tested on Einstein@Home. To participate in the Beta test, you need to edit your Einstein@Home preferences, and set "Run beta/test application versions?" to "yes".

Einstein@Home Volunteers Discover Four "Young" Gamma-Ray Pulsars

November 26, 2013

Congratulations to our volunteers:

Thomas M. Jackson, Kentucky, USA
Mak-ino, Japan
Doug Lean, Australia
Hans-Peter Tobler, Germany
NEMO computing cluster, UW-Milwaukee, USA
Chen, USA
David Z, Canada
Test, France

whose computers have found 4 new gamma-ray pulsars in data from the Large Area Telescope on board NASA's Fermi Satellite. These are the first gamma-ray pulsars ever discovered by Einstein@Home; only a few dozen such objects (spinning neutron stars whose pulsations are only visible via their gamma rays) are known.
