|I downloaded a program that basically when im idle on my computer sits here, and thinks up random designs for a particle accelerator, and runs simulations for said particle accelerator. These results (design, efficiency) are then transmitted to the server here. is this correct? and does any one wanna elaborate?|
|Basically that's right. Also, depending on whether or not you've disabled the option in config.txt, you will from time to time receive a lost of top results back from the server. This allows the program to test designs around more successful ones in order to get more efficient designs quicker.|
Hope that helps.
|JLobes, another feature is that when an "optimization" routine stops improving (no real progress after a week or two), Stephen will create a new or modified optimization and it automatically propagates. For example, ChicaneLinacB stopped improving, so we are now running ChicaneLinacB90.|
The overall modular process lets us work on different areas of the whole neutrino producing linear accellerator.
Keep in mind, also, this is a "still to be built" project. When the funding is there, it will be built using the parameters that our computers have fine tuned.
|Thankyou. You have all been most helpful|
