Dear volunteers,

the 2019 pentathlon is over, and we would like to thank all the participants for having crunched our tasks! We saw the BOINC CPU capacity almost doubled, boosting our calculations, even though it was only for few days. We are very grateful for that!

The SixTrack team would also like to thank all you volunteers who regularly support us with your CPUs. You give us the possibility to deepen our understanding of the dynamic aperture, a quantity of paramount importance for the stability of particle beams in big research accelerators like superconducting colliders - last but not least a very recent paper on the most important journal in the field of accelerator physics, comparing simulations and measurements:
https://journals.aps.org/prab/pdf/10.1103/PhysRevAccelBeams.22.034002
where simulation results have been obtained thanks to you and BOINC!

A lot has been already done with your help, but a lot more has still to come in the next future. We count on your support!
Keep up the good work,
Alessio and Massimo, for the SixTrack team

I can think of only one way to give BOINC Pentathlon the recognition it deserves... establish it as a regular millenial event to be held in the Spring of the 19th year of every millenium.
