Milkyway@home application for the BOINC client

The goal of Milkyway@Home is to use the BOINC platform to harness volunteered computing resources in creating a highly accurate three dimensional model of the Milky Way galaxy using data gathered by the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. This project enables research in both astroinformatics and computer science.

In computer science, the project is investigating different optimization methods which are resilient to the fault-prone, heterogeneous and asynchronous nature of Internet computing; such as evolutionary and genetic algorithms, as well as asynchronous newton methods. While in astroinformatics, Milkyway@Home is generating highly accurate three dimensional models of the Sagittarius stream, which provides knowledge about how the Milky Way galaxy was formed and how tidal tails are created when galaxies merge.

This package contains the Milkyway@home application for the BOINC distributed computing platform. Note that this package has been primarily created for users of architectures for which Milkyway@home does not provide its application. If your architecture is x86 or AMD64 the BOINC client automatically downloads the latest Milkyway@home application if you participate in this project. There is no need to install this package then.
