Sangyong Jeon

Sangyong Jeon’s research group has created one of the most advanced hydrodynamic simulation suites of in-house software: MUSIC. This software enables multiple Canadian researchers further our understanding of Quark-Gluon Plasma, an important building block of the universe.

The focus of McGill’s nuclear theory group is to study and to characterize the creation and the evolution of the Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) produced in relativistic heavy ion collisions. (…) Compute/Calcul Canada infrastructure is used to perform sophisticated modeling (relativistic hydrodynamics, and Monte Carlo tools) required to study the physics of the QGP. (…) The results of this research have the potential to impact Canadians by maintaining and consolidating our leadership at the forefront of international efforts to understand and quantify this new phase of matter. It will also have a great impact on training a large number of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who will themselves become leaders of the field. Without Compute/Calcul Canada’s large-scale, high-performance computing infrastructure this kind of endeavor would be impossible. Access to large-scale, high-performance computing provided by CC is absolutely essential to acquire enough statistics, needed to understand the complexity of QGP physics and make meaningful comparisons to experimental data.
