(behoben) Störung der Glasfaserverbindung Verwaltungsnetz zwischen Halbmondstraße und RRZE

22. Mai 2017

Aufgrund einer Störung an der Glasfaserverbindung des Verwaltungsnetzes (ZUV) zwischen dem Aufpunkt Halbmondstr. und dem RRZE können die Verwaltungsarbeitsplätze im Schloss, der Halbmondstr. sowie Krankenhaus- und Turnstr. gegenwärtig keine der zentralen Dienste oder das Internet erreichen.

Downtime of HPC clusters LiMa, TinyFAT & parts of Woody on Mon, May 15 (FINISHED)

12. Mai 2017

Due to urgent work on the power grid, the HPC clusters LiMa, TinyFAT & parts of Woody (w10xx = :sb and w12xx = :sl16) as well as Memoryhog have to be shut down on Monday, May 15th starting at 7 o’clock in the morning. As usual, jobs that would collide with the downtime will be postponed.

Cluster perturbation theory for electron-phonon systems

Cluster perturbation theory represents a powerful and versatile method to study spectral properties of strongly correlated systems. In existing work, the numerical diagonalization of the cluster problem has been done by means of the spectral decoding method which, however, faces problems due to numerical instabilities.

In this project, a recently developed kernel polynomial approach is applied to several open problems in the field of electron-phonon systems. To this end, we use high performance supercomputers and compute clusters.


The calculations consist of two steps.

  • The so-called cluster Green function is calculated on a finite system using open boundary conditions. This represents the numerically difficult part, and we use a MPI-based parallel code run on modern-day supercomputers (e.g., Hitachi SR800-F1 at the Externer Link:  LRZ) or compute clusters (e.g., CRAY strider opteron cluster at the Externer Link:  HLRS) with high-speed network connections. The dimensions of the sparse matrices in the matrix-vector multiplication are as large as 10 billion.
  • Once the moments of the single-particle Green function have been obtained, it is possible to compute the resulting spectral functions within a few seconds on a personal computer.
