DescriptionDescription: This proposal requests 20,000 SUs on XSEDE for 20 undergraduate students and mentors participating in the Computational Astronomy & Physics REU Program at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill in summer 2014. The time is needed for a computational methods tutorial on the Open Science Grid followed by optional use of the OSG for the students summer research projects, with possible continuing use through January 2014 to enable polishing the projects for presentation at conferences. The projects cover a range of topics in computational astronomy and physics. Details can be found in the supporting material attached.
