Still though, nothing can ever beat the Hale-Bopp Comet...I doubt we will see anything like this again in the near future-but you never know.
<br>That was the only Comet I've ever seen in my entire Life.  I saw it with only my naked eyes but it was great!  I was walking into a friend of mine's house to be sketched by her boyfriend's art class and one of the artists pointed it out to me.  Pure Magick!  :)<br><br>Gypsy Moon Dream<br>

[quote author=Arkay link=board=legends;num=1059863281;start=30#42 date=12/28/03 at 14:30:39]The study continues...<br><br>...Got time to play that note on yer ultra low bass guitar?[/quote]<br><br>that all well & good arkay, but those calcs are for earth bound waves; the wavelengths are actually travelling in space (a vaccum) so you're off by a factor of 3.239x10[sup]23[/sup]....<br><br>That means, for wavelengths below 200 nm (which approximates the extent of earth's atmosphere), the search is done for vacuum wavelength; for wavelengths above 200 nm, the search is done on air wavelengths. In the one-column wavelength output, wavelengths are given as they appear in the original data files, that is, vacuum wavelength below 200 nm and air wavelength above 200 nm. <br><br>In order to parallelize the spectrum calculations for a model atmosphere with a global velocity field, such as the expanding atmospheres of novae, supernovae or stellar winds, we need to take the mathematical character of monotonic velocity fields into account. For an initial condition at the smallest wavelength for expanding atmospheres and at the largest wavelength for contracting atmospheres this initial value problem must be discretized fully implicitly to ensure stability. <br><br>In the simplest case of a 1[sup]st[/sup] order discretization, the solution wavelength point i depends only on the results of the point i[sup] -1[/sup].  In order to parallelize the spectrum calculations, the wavelength cluster n[sup]i[/sup] computing the solution for wavelength point i must know the specific intensities from the cluster ni[sup]-1[/sup] computing the solution for point i [sup]-1[/sup]. This suggests a pipeline solution to the wavelength parallelization, transforming the matrix arrangement of nodes into a torus arrangement where data are sent along the torus' circumference. <br><br>Note: only the solution is affected by this, the calculation of the opacities <br>and rates remains independent between different wavelength clusters. <br><br>In this case, the wavelength parallelization works as follows: <br><br>Each cluster can independently compute the opacities and start the calculations (e.g., the  calculations, hereafter called the pre-processing phase), it then waits until it receives the specific intensities for the previous wavelength point, then it finishes the solution and immediately sends the results to the wavelength cluster calculating the next wavelength point (to minimize waiting time, this is done with non-blocking send/receives), then proceeds to calculate the rates etc. (hereafter called the post-processing phase and the new opacities for its next wavelength point and so on.<br><br><br>[tt]back to the d.b.[/tt]<br>
