The SixTrack team would like to thank all the teams who took part in the 2017 pentathlon hosted by SETI.Germany:
https://www.seti-germany.de/boinc_pentathlon/
where LHC@Home was chosen for the swimming discipline. The pentathlon gave us the possibility of carrying out a vast simulation campaign, with lots of new results generated that we are now analysing. While the LHC experiments send volunteers tasks where data collected by the LHC detectors has to be analysed or Monte Carlo codes for data generation, SixTrack work units probe the dynamics of LHC beams; hence, your computers are running a live model of the LHC in order to explore its potential without actually using real LHC machine time, precious to physics.

Your contribution to our analyses is essential. For instance, we reached ~2.5 MWUs processed in total, with a peak slightly above 400kWUs processed at the same time, and >50TFLOPs, during the entire two weeks of the pentathlon. The pentathlon was also the occasion to verify recent improvements to our software infrastructure. After this valuable experience, we are now concentrating our energies on updating the executables with brand new functionality, extending the range of studies and of supported systems. This implies an even increased dependence on your valuable support.

Thanks a lot to all people involved! We count on your help and committment to science and to LHC@home to pursue the new challenges of beam dynamics which lie ahead.

Very good! Thanks a lot for the feedback.

The more we get the impression something meaningful is being done with our computational efforts, the more support you may expect.

Now.........I wouldn't mind getting some SixTrack tasks while my pitiful DSL is up since I don't need that to start the tasks running like I have to do with the thousands of VB tasks

Such a feedback is always nice to hear and a valuable input for the community, who often suffers from a lack of communication from the project(s) team(s), precisely !

Leider konnte ich an dem Pentathlon nicht teilnehmen (zu alt zu,to week)aber die mathematischen Aufgaben Ihrer Arbeiten bin ich bereit weiterhin zu unterstützen.Die Neuerungen in Ihrem Programm begrüße ich und hoffe das sie meine Umrechnungshilfen unterstützen.

Auf gutes Gelingen und eine weitere Erfolgreiche Zusammenarbeit.
