Muon1 hits 40 Quad milestone

The Muon1 project today hit its 40 quadrillion particle timestep milestone. That means that in the last 2.5 years, it's processed as much work as it had in the previous 9 years.


Muon1, a 2012 Retrospective

A little late, but I thought I’d bring you the breakdown of results for Muon1 through 2012. Better late than never though, so here are the highs and lows of 2012 for the Muon1 Distributed Particle Accelerator Project.

To start with, let’s start with the stats. The weekly stats continue to be published every Tuesday, and the start and end points this year for this piece are 3 January 2012 to 1 January 2013.


Best Designs - Linac900Ext7Xc2

After a break of several months, the latest entry in the video stable comes from Linac900Ext7Xc2. Started in February, and closed in October, it had the third highest number of simulations returned in recent times.

The best design was 4.142452% by 1 27972 - A Yoyo@home Boinc Wrapper user.


Muon1 Results Broken Down

As the Muon1 Stats server has had a breakdown, and hasn't been updated for two weeks, it's been a good chance to look at the stats themselves, and break them down by lattice.

With no stats box to constantly update it every hour, it's given me a stable dataset to work with for once. It does make a nice change to be able to see the stats and not have them change within an hour. So, while this break is ongoing, I thought about a breakdown of past lattices and their contributions.
