Re: EMC2 news

It has run on thousands of cores, and will continue to.
It is a full 3d model, not 2d or a quadrant.

Re: EMC2 news

As I know, he is still at Max Planck, but possibly supporting Biochemistry work. The well depth is a function of confinement and electron sourcing as well as other loss factors. As in all science, we strive to identify and control significant factors. In the case of Polywell, confinement is the lead...

Re: EMC2 news

I think we should try again. Be very interesting to hear his take. I suspect, however, that he will only comment on published work.
He may not have enough interest until the next publication.

Re: EMC2 news

I think he would be interested. I am not sure he actually responded the last time we reached out.
I believe that some of his questions and concerns have been addressed, especially regarding diamagnetic behaviors at the boundaries and within the cusps.

Re: EMC2 news

The intent is to test machine scaling. And that is why it runs on thousands of cores on a supercomputer.

Re: EMC2 news

Most likely, the coders are your average contract coders. In this case they are not "your average coders". And, they have a great understanding of the physics involved. In my experience, having programmers who a.) care about the project and b.) understand the project's objectives and c.) ...

Re: EMC2 news

There is an inherent circulation of (e-)s which generates additional fields and interactions beyond the machine magnets. It is, in my mind, and very much chicken/egg process as the standing fields, electron motion (dependent initially on static fields), electron generated fields, and electron densit...

Re: SpaceX News

I checked SpaceFlight Insider, and they confused me as to the "Flight Proven" status of the launch.
In any event, I suspect it will be extremely boring, again. 8)

Re: EMC2 news

A key statement is made on Slide 8. Don't overlook what it means. It also couples back to Slide 7.
I just noticed a couple of typos. Makes me sad. I should have caught them long ago.

Re: Skynet is coming.

On a side note, I was at Udvar-Hazy this weekend and had a nice visit with their collection of German & US guided weapons. They have an HS 298, 239, 117 and Fritz X on display. Hs 298 Hs 293 Hs 117 Fritz X In addition to others, they also have the US Bat Radar guided weapon; Bat Missile

Re: SpaceX News

Sadly I missed the launch as I had other commitments. I take it that it was "boring", ...again. :)

Looks like I may be able to watch tomorrow's!

Re: EMC2 news

The quality of support is very high.
What has been learned from the lab and the sim work has been significant, and has advanced the theory.
More to follow, be patient.
Any comments on the presentation (albeit sans videos)?
