 2019-01-2520:28 [FZJ-2019-00785] Preprint et al The DEEP-ER project: I/O and resiliency extensions for the Cluster-Booster architecture The recently completed research project DEEP-ER has developed a variety of hardware and software technologies to improve the I/O capabilities of next generation high-performance computers, and to enable applications recovering from the larger hardware failure rates expected on these machines.The heterogeneous Cluster-Booster architecture – first introduced in the predecessor DEEP project – has been extended by a multi-level memory hierarchy employing non-volatile and network-attached memory devices. Based on this hardware infrastructure, an I/O and resiliency software stack has been implemented combining and extending well established libraries and software tools, and sticking to standard user-interfaces.

Improving Superconducting Qubits - Understanding Decoherence GIT 3, 28-30 (2018) 2019-01-1709:43 [FZJ-2019-00442] Preprint/Book et al Novel physics opportunities at the HESR-Collider with PANDA at FAIR Cornell, High Energy Physics - Phenomenology (2018) Exciting new scientific opportunities are presented for the PANDA detector at the High Energy Storage Ring in the redefined p_bar p(A) collider mode, HESR-C, at the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research(FAIR) in Europe. The high luminosity, L = 10^31 cm^-2 s^-1, and a wide range of intermediate and high energies, sqrt(sNN) up to 30 GeV for p_bar p(A) collisions will allow to explore a wide range of exciting topics in QCD, including the study of the production of excited open charm and bottom states, nuclear bound states containing heavy (anti)quarks, the interplay of hard and soft physics in the dilepton production, andthe exploration of the regime where gluons - but not quarks - experience strong interaction..

The underlying mechanisms of these effects and their relationship to tissue properties were so far unknown. [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2019-01-1513:19 [FZJ-2019-00285] Preprint et al Transmittance assisted interpretation of 3D nerve fibre architectures Transmission microscopy measurements of histological brain sections provide usually only 2D (in-plane) information about the spatial nerve fibre architecture. To access the third dimension (out-of-plane orientation) of the nerve fibres, more advanced techniques are required, such as Three-dimensional Polarized Light Imaging (3D-PLI) which uses birefringence measurements to derive the 3D fibre orientations.

Statistical sensitivities can approach $10^{-29}$e$\cdot$cm.

Total and differential cross sections have been obtained covering the energy region $T_p = 1.08 - 1.36$ GeV ($\sqrt s$ = 2.35 - 2.46 GeV), which includes the regions of $N^*(1440)$ and $\Delta(1232)\Delta(1232)$ resonance excitations.

We outline the basic features of the method, show how the correct hydrodynamic equations are recovered and perform validation tests.
