Potential of the Julia programming language for high energy physics computing

Research in high energy physics (HEP) requires huge amounts of computing and storage, putting strong constraints on the code speed and resource usage. To meet these requirements, a compiled high-performance language is typically used; while for physicists… Read more


JuMPing at Gcd, with Julia

Recently, I was teaching my kids how to compute gcd(Greatest Common Divisor). Instead of just teaching the mechanics of calculation, I wanted to show them some interesting properties of gcd. (more…)
