Rainer Spurzem

Professor; joint appointment with the NAOC
Research interests: 
modelling dense stellar systems, galactic nuclei with black holes, relativistic dynamics, N-body simulations, parallel many-core and accelerated computing
Research Highlights: 
  • How do Black Holes merge in Galactic Nuclei?
  • How do they emit gravitational waves to be detected on Earth?  
  • How do Star Clusters evolve with and without black holes?
  • How are planetary systems evolving in a star cluster environment?
  • How can we design supercomputers which are faster and consume less energy? 
  • How does parallel programming change for accelerated many core computers?
