Exascale simulations of magnetized AGN jets on Frontier
Myself and a group of collaborators were awarded an INCITE 2023 Award to perform exascale simulations of galaxy clusters with magnetized jets powered by a central active galactic nuclei (AGN). Galaxy clusters, as the largest gravitationally bound structures, provide a unique probe of large scale structure in the universe. The magnetized AGN jets play a key role in the dynamics of baryonic matter in galaxy clusters and thus observational signatures of clusters.
These simulations are enabled by AthenaPK, our exascale capable performance portable astrophysics code. I am currently working on optimizing these AthenaPK simulations on the exascale supercomputer Frontier.
