Shami Tsai has successfully benchmarked the analytical chemistry formula derived in Heng, Lyons & Tsai (2016) and Heng & Lyons (2016) against the TEA code, which computes equilibrium chemistry via Gibbs free energy minimization. This has... more
Efficient parallel computations in THOR require global domain decomposition of the grid. In our model we take the advantage of the geometrical properties of the icosahedron which can be divided into 10 rhombuses as shown in the figure. The... more
The Exoclimes Simulation Platform (ESP) was born from a necessity to move beyond Earth-centric climate simulators, to provide the scientific community studying exoplanets with an ultra-fast, open-source and all-encompassing set of simulational tools. The ESP is designed to harness the power of GPU (graphics processing unit) computing, which affords a speed-up at the order-of-magnitude level. Our ultimate goal is for ESP users to become co-developers.
