Chad HannaOne of the biggest scientific discoveries of this century is the detection of gravitational waves. Join Chad Hanna, assistant professor of physics at Penn State, for a discussion of how computation helped to pave the way to present-day gravitational wave astronomy. Hanna will identify areas in which the field is ready for a paradigm shift in computation and mention projects that can take advantage of future exascale computing resources. Registration is requested by April 10 as seating is limited.

This talk is one in a series in which Institute for CyberScience faculty explain their research and usage of high-performance computing for a general audience. Learn how computational and big data methods enable exciting scientific advances. Refreshments will be served!
