About the project

Universe@home project's two main goals are:
  1. to provide scientist with a necessary computational power and
  2. to provide the way of involvement for anyone equipped with a computer and willing to take part in the research
Our simulations deal with fundamental problems of the Universe, which cannot be investigated in a laboratory. From the birth of stars to the utmost energetic supernova explosions, nature still astonishes us but at the same time leaves ways for scientific examination. ... More..

I live in France where I work as a freelance in software development. I support every project but especially astronomic and mathematic ones.

Server update
The project server software must be updated.
Unfortunately, this operation must take place today so I apologize for the lack of prior notice.
Over the next few days, downtime will be possible.

Hardware upgrade
I just got info that we finally got new server for project and new database server.
Depend on when I arrive to Warsaw we will be off for about one to two days to move everything to the new machines.

It will happen probably from Thursday 24th October until Friday 26th or week later same days.

Results databases
After last server update I have also prepared NFS based folders with results databases.
So, here is rsults page where you can download all processed data from our project.

Server upgrade
For next few days I will not generate more tasks as I'm preparing to server software update.
The software will require few restarts and is planned later in this week - I will inform you when it happens exactly.

Emission from ULXs
After a series of papers on gravitational wave sources, we published results concerning ultra-luminous X-ray sources. In the paper we analyse the anisotropic emission of radiation from these sources and show that the actual population of ultra-luminous X-ray sources differs from the observed one. Particularly, in flux limited surveys, the observed population will be highly biased toward black hole accretors, whereas neutron star accretors dominate volume-limited observations.
