Large equipment

Short Description

The Scientific Cluster Salzburg 1 consists of 3 identical machines boasting 32 cores and 1,5TB of RAM each. The cores are based on the processor Intel Xeon(R) Gold 6144 Prozessoren @ 3.50GHz (max. 4.20GHz) v4 which are mounted in 4 sockets per server. These machines are intended for scalable applications who address all cores per system via the 10Gbit interconnect.
The operating system in use is Red-Hat Linux.

Methods & Expertise for Research Infrastructure

Complex simulations and numerical applications, as well as calculations of linear models (multivariate statistics) and sample size planning. In particular, simulations of natural scientific and technical processes with finite element methods (

Use of methods from algorithmic theory and of randomized algorithms (especially for the analysis of large networks). These techniques are combined with methods of discrete mathematics (

Computations in the field of community ecology: e.g. simulation of the influence of assembly-rules and intra-/interspecific competition to floral and vegetal traits of plant communities. Computations of relations of flower colours and bloom visitors with non-linear least square regressions.

Used methods: FreeSurfer with Singularity, Dynamic Causal Modelling (DCM), ERF and time-frequency analysis
Expertise in: Longitudinal Structural MRI analysis, EEG / MEG analysis, Digital signal processing"
