[Users] meeting minutes for 2018-12-03

Bill Gabella b.gabella at vanderbilt.edu
Mon Dec 3 19:58:37 CST 2018

Present: Steve, Peter, Zach, Samuel, Antoni Ramos, Bill (taking minutes)

* no Roland, no report (see below)

* Zach reported.  He has a small-ish but not well understood LORENE2 
initial data from his collaborator, has permissions to use it.
* Working with Josh Faber (RIT) who is using LORENE2 for binary NS 
mergers, will have another small initial data set from him.
* Discussion of a possible problem in LORENE2, a bug, that may make it 
incorrect.  In the translation from French to English a subroutine was 
not translated.  Also the LORENE1 initial data may not be 
useful/readable in LORENE2.
* Because of this Zach and Steve recommend proceeding with caution.  
Last week the conclusion had been to replace LORENE1 with LORENE2...now 
not recommended until this is understood/explored further.
