The Silk Road Project Team is dedicated to computational studies of the evolution of planetary systems, star clusters, galaxies and galactic nuclei, black holes and gravitational wave emission. Our two main project nodes are Beijing, China (NAOC and KIAA) and Heidelberg, Germany (ZAH-ARI); we collaborate closely with institutions and colleagues from Kiev (Ukraine) and Almaty (Kazakhstan) and several other countries (e.g. Chile, Italy, UK, Pakistan, Austria,...). We are dedicated to teach and promote the use of new supercomputing facilities in China and abroad.
Our project is a bridge between China and Germany, with links to Asia, Europe, Americas ...
...through this bridge we exchange students, knowledge, scientists...
...work together for new technologies, and also for mutual cultural respect and understanding...
Our Main Research Projects are:
Binary Supermassive Black Holes and Gravitational Waves in Quiet and Active Galactic Nuclei
Dynamical Evolution of Stars and Gas in Galactic Nuclei and Dense Star Clusters
How are planetary systems forming and evolving (in star clusters)?
How can we design supercomputers which are faster and consume less energy?
Education and Workshops in Computational and Theoretical Astrophysics, Parallel Programming and Accelerated Computing
