COAST is a IRFU project of high performances computing in astrophysics. COAST promotes high performances computing in astrophysics at CEA/ IRFU. Our activities include code development, applied mathematics, data visualisation, distributed databases, code optimization and parallel computing.
The project is a joint initiative of the Laboratory for Astrophysical Plasma Modelisation (LMPA, IRFU/SAp) and the Laboratory for Applied Computer Science (LILAS, IRFU/SEDI), involving also the Laboratory of Dynamics of Stars and their Environment (LDEE, IRFU/SAp) and the Laboratory for Cosmologie and Galaxies Evolution (LCEG, IRFU/SAp).
The "Maison de la Simulation" is also associated with the project. COAST and its members are located at CEA Saclay,France.
Romain Teyssier, former P.I. of the project and the COAST team received the "Grand Prix Scientifique Cino and Simone Del Duca 2011" for the COAST work.
