LHC@home

Web site: https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is a particle accelerator at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, the world's largest particle physics laboratory. It is the most powerful instrument ever built to investigate on particles proprieties. LHC@home runs simulations to improve the design of LHC and its detectors.

NumberFields@home

Web site: http://numberfields.asu.edu/NumberFields/

NumberFields@home searches for fields with special properties. The primary application of this research is in the realm of algebraic number theory. Number theorists can mine the data for interesting patterns to help them formulate conjectures about number fields. Ultimately, this research will lead to a deeper understanding of the profound properties of numbers, the basic building blocks of all mathematics.

Climateprediction.net

Web site: https://climateprediction.net/

Investigate the approximations that have to be made in state-of-the-art climate models. By running the model thousands of times we hope to find out how the model responds to slight tweaks to these approximations - slight enough to not make the approximations any less realistic. This will allow us to improve our understanding of how sensitive our models are to small changes and also to things like changes in carbon dioxide and the sulphur cycle. This will allow us to explore how climate may change in the next century under a wide range of different scenarios.

Asteroids@home

Web site: http://asteroidsathome.net/boinc/

The aim of the project is to derive shapes and spin for a significant part of the asteroid population. As input data, we use any asteroid photometry that is available. The results are asteroid convex shape models with the direction of the spin axis and the rotation period.

NFS@home

Web site: https://escatter11.fullerton.edu/nfs/

NFS@Home is a research project that uses Internet-connected computers to do the lattice sieving step in the Number Field Sieve factorization of large integers. As a young school student, you gained your first experience at breaking an integer into prime factors, such as 15 = 3 * 5 or 35 = 5 * 7. NFS@Home is a continuation of that experience, only with integers that are hundreds of digits long.

ODLK

Web site: https://boinc.progger.info/odlk/

OLDK is building a database of canonical forms of diagonal Latin squares of the 10th order

Keywords: Mathematics and Computer Science · Europe · Russia · Russian Academy of Science


RakeSearch

Web site: https://rake.boincfast.ru/rakesearch/

The enormous size of the diagonal Latin squares space makes it unfeasible to enumerate all its objects straightforwardly in reasonable time. So, in order to discover the structure of this space, sophisticated search methods are needed. In RakeSearch project, we implement an application that picks up separate pairs of mutually orthogonal DLSs, which allows to reconstruct full graphs of their orthogonality.

GPUGrid.net

Web site: https://www.gpugrid.net/

GPUGrid.net opens novel computational scenarios by the first full-atom molecular dynamics code (CellMD) specially optimized to run on NVIDIA GPUs. New biomedical applications suddenly become possible giving a new role to computational biology for biomedical research.

Ibercivis BOINC

Web site: https://boinc.ibercivis.es/ibercivis/

Simulate the interaction of drugs used against Ebola, HIV, influenza or hepatitis B with the replication machinery of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. This will show if any of the molecules inhibits a key protein in the multiplication of the virus called 'RNA-dependent RNA polymerase'. If so, the drug would become an ideal candidate for testing in human clinical trials.
