Supercomputer Cluster 

The Department of Physics operates a 53-node research supercomputing cluster, affectionately named SpiderWulf, that is funded by the National Science Foundation and the University of Richmond. The cluster supports the nuclear physics research professors Jerry Gilfoyle, of Richmond, and Mike Vineyard, of Union College, conduct at the Thomas Jefferson Accelerator Facility Lab and was the result of a successful grant application to the Major Research Instrumentation Program of the NSF. The cluster currently consists of 49 512-MByte-RAM, 1.4 GHz Athlon slave nodes and one master.
