SETI.UK is a long established distributed computing team which began as a SETI@home team. Anybody is welcome to join our teams across the BOINC range of projects.

Remember to join our team on each individual BOINC project you are participating in.

These are the current active projects in which our team has a presence:

Amicable Numbers ‘Amicable numbers’ are pairs where the sum of the proper divisors of each is equal to the other number. The goal of this project is to collect all amicable numbers up to a very large limit. SETI.UK Team page.

Asteroids@home The aim of the project is to derive shapes and spin for a significant part of the asteroid population. As input data, any asteroid photometry that is available is used. The results are asteroid convex shape models with the direction of the spin axis and the rotation period. SETI.UK Team page.

BOINC@TACC Provides computing power to U.S. researchers in a multiplet scientific areas. SETI.UK Team page.

BURP Aims to develop an open source publicly distributed system for rendering 3D animation. SETI.UK Team page.

CAS@home Projects studying protein structure, nanotechnology, cancer genomics, and high energy physics. SETI.UK Team page.

Citizen Science Grid Supporting a wide range of research and educational projects using volunteer computing and citizen science. SETI.UK Team page.

climateprediction.net Investigate the approximations that have to be made in state-of-the-art climate models. By running the model thousands of times find out how the model responds to slight tweaks to these approximations – slight enough to not make the approximations any less realistic. This will improve understanding of how sensitive models are to small changes and also to things like changes in carbon dioxide and the sulphur cycle. This will allow the exploration of how climate may change in the next century under a wide range of different scenarios. SETI.UK Team page.

Collatz Conjecture Study the Collatz Conjecture, an unsolved conjecture in mathematics. SETI.UK Team page.

Cosmology@Home To search for the model that best describes the Universe and to find the range of models that agree with the available astronomical particle physics data. SETI.UK Team page.

LHC@home The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is a particle accelerator at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, the world’s largest particle physics laboratory. It is the most powerful instrument ever built to investigate on particles proprieties. LHC@home runs simulations to improve the design of LHC and its detectors. SETI.UK Team page.

nanoHUB@Home Provides computing power to users of the nanoHUB portal for nanoscience. SETI.UK Team page.

NFS@home A research project that uses computers to do the lattice sieving step in the Number Field Sieve factorization of large integers. SETI.UK Team page.

NumberFields@home Searches for fields with special properties. The primary application of this research is in the realm of algebraic number theory. Number theorists can mine the data for interesting patterns to help them formulate conjectures about number fields. Ultimately, this research will lead to a deeper understanding of the profound properties of numbers, the basic building blocks of all mathematics. SETI.UK Team page.

ODLK ODLK is building a database of canonical forms of diagonal Latin squares of the 10th order. SETI.UK Team page.

Quake-Catcher Network Sensor Monitoring Uses strong-motion seismic sensors in schools, museums, libraries, and other education environments across the United States to provide a way for learners to engage with seismic data collected around them. SETI.UK Team page.

QuChemPedIA@home To constitute a large collaborative open platform that will solve and store quantum molecular chemistry results. Also to radically change the approach developing artificial intelligence and optimization methods in order to explore efficiently the highly combinatorial molecular space. You will help chemical researchers around the world by building a unique collection of results. SETI.UK Team page.

Radioactive@Home Creating a free and continuously updated map of radiation levels using sensors connected to volunteers’ computers. You must buy a sensor to participate. SETI.UK Team page.

Rake search The enormous size of the diagonal Latin squares space makes it unfeasible to enumerate all its objects straightforwardly in reasonable time. So, in order to discover the structure of this space, sophisticated search methods are needed. Pick up separate pairs of mutually orthogonal DLSs, allowing reconstruction of full graphs of orthogonality. SETI.UK Team page.
