Fermilab Lattice Gauge Theory Computational Facility
Fermilab operates large clusters of computers for lattice
quantum chromodynamics, as part of the national
computational infrastructure for lattice QCD established
by the Department of Energy.
Their goal is the understanding of the strong dynamics of
quarks and gluons, which is beyond the reach of the
traditional perturbative methods of quantum field theory.
A central goal of the groups using the computers is the
accomplishment of the calculations required to extract
from experiment the fundamental parameters of the
Standard Model of particle physics.
NEWS: Lattice Cluster End-of-life
The Fermilab LQCD pi0, pi0g, Bc and Ds clusters
(both CPU and GPU based) and /lqcdproj, /lfsz Lustre
file-systems will be retired and inaccessible after
March 31 2020.
This is a HARD deadline.
This DOES NOT affect the LQ1 Institutional cluster and
any disk storage available on that cluster.
