Attended the presentation “An excursion through flatland: Braiding interactions of anyons,” by Gavin K. Brennen, Dept. of Physics, Macquarie University, Sydney.  Anyons are hypothetical particles.  They interact as a function of braiding, knotting or topological relationship with other particles rather than with distance (as with other matter).  Majorana fermions are an example of fermionic anyons.

Decomposed a 10,000 by 10,000 matrix on Gibbs today.

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

I was able to create a random dimension 10,000 Hermitian matrix and determine its eigenvalues and eigenvectors on the supercomputer Gibbs today.

Super Computer Timing of Creation of a General Hermitian Marix and Its Eigendecomposition in Matlab

Monday, April 1st, 2013

Using the supercomputer Gibbs at the University of New Mexico I get the following timings for various number of nodes for the creation of a random Hermitian matrix and its Eigen decomposition.  Each node used 16 processors.   JGW_Graphic
