Astronomical Data Reduction and Imaging

Large astronomical detector arrays are producing increasingly large data volumes. Fortunately, the algorithms for reducing such data can be massively parallelized, and are well-suited for cluster computing with a large number of computing nodes. Additionally GPU processing can be used for even greater speeds. This research focuses on pioneering more capable and faster approaches for ground-based imaging applications.
