AstroPulse will be the first science application to use BOINC.
It is a good beta-test application:
- Simple data analysis/reduction.
- Algorithm can be highly parallelised.
- Only needs fifty thousand computers. (SETI@home uses half a million!)
- We can boost that by adding a pulsar search
Other projects which plan to use BOINC:
- SETI@home II
- Global climate modeling/prediction (Oxford)
- Fun things Eric wants to do if he can find the time.
