New graphs from 2018-06-14
Dear participants!

Next 5 types of graphs from orthogonal diagonal Latin squares discovered in RakeSearch project was published on preliminary results page.

[R9_000048091/02] - 2388 verticles and 7752 edges. Fourth graph with number of verticles larger than 2000!

[R9_000072907/01] - 18 verticles and 18 edges. Simple graph with "central square", "rim" and "stalk".

[R9_000072907/02] - 5 verticles and 4 edges! Tiny and very simple graph, but this is its first appearance!

[R9_000074356/02] - 26 verticles and 76 edges. Relatively small graph and second with 26 edges.

[R9_000076735/01] - 24 verticles and 73 edges. Another small graph and fourth with 24 edges!

When we move forward - we see a new structures, new types of graphs. And this is - a very interesting! Thank you for your participation in project, which made this possible!

Next 9 of graph types
Dear folks!

The next set of graph types was published on preliminary results page! It consist of 9 samples:

[R9_000046266/01] - consist of 56 verticles and 360 edges. Verticles of this graph broken on core and two branches. Inside core we can see group of 16 verticles, located in "central circle", outer ring of another 16 verticles, and 4 verticles which a base for two branches. Each of verticle from "circle" linked with all 16 verticles from outer ring and 4 verticles from branch base but no any links exist between them! In consequence, each of 16 verticles of outer ring linked with all verticles in "central circle". Verticles in branches base - also.

[R9_000046266/02] - 78 verticles and 448 edges forms "arm" and "body" which are build from belts of verticles. Verticles in each belt linked with verticles in near belts.

[R9_000046269/02] - 32 verticles and 256 edges. Each verticle from rim connected to all vericles in center and each verticle in center connected with all "rim verticles". And no any links exist between verticles inside center.

[R9_000046269/04] - 16 verticles and 28 edges. "Ray-like" figure from two central verticles and three "rays" outgoing from them.

[R9_000046269/05] - 18 verticles and 40 edges. "Arm", "body", "horns". :) Unusual figure!

[R9_000047793/01] - 104 verticles and 644 edges. Interesting combination of two "belts" into "core", "rays" and "horns"! What is it? :)

[R9_000047793/02] - 80 verticles and 688 edges. Big insect?

[R9_000047796/02] - 28 verticles and 96 edges. Another challenge for naming!

[R9_000047796/04] - 16 verticles and 64 edges. Verticles in "central belt" linked with all verticles in left and right "belts".

Saturday graphs!
Dear crunchers!

On preliminary results page we publish a next 5 types of graphs discovered in RakeSearch project:

[R9_000043841/01] - 8 verticles and 9 edges. Simple and symmetrical graph!

[R9_000044083/02] - 212 verticles and 1104 edges. Fourth by number of squares on today. We see a many "petals" - they corresponds a set of squares, each of them is orthogonal to 2 other squares, "located" in center of "flower".

[R9_000044085/03] - 56 verticles and 400 edges. Flower in a pot?

[R9_000044623/01] - 38 verticles and 106 edges. Can any to invent a name for this figure?

[R9_000045135/01] - 37 verticles and 97 edges. Crab? Fish? Flower? Alive? Not?

Sunday graphs!
Dear participants!

On preliminary results page a new 5 types of graphs, discovered in RakeSearch project, were published.
[R9_000042319/01] - consist from 28 verticles and 79 edges and near to figure with radial symmetry.

[R9_000042871/02] - drafted by 68 verticles and 146 edges. A fish from seabed?

[R9_000043553/02] - crayfish from 28 verticles and 80 edges?

[R9_000043575/02] - looks like chrysanthemums on stems and this graph is significantly larger than previouses in group - 132 verticles and 320 edges forms it!

[R9_000043575/03] - a relatively simple graph, only 14 verticles and 27 edges. Stops and routes of urban transport? :)

Of course, no any sense in this figures exists and "fishes, flowers and satellites" - just for fun (it's a weekend pictures!). And using another method of graphs layouting, we can get absolutely other visible form for it. But human mind, targeted on recognition of known objects in lines and spots - will see still some figure.

And we congratulate a Daniel from BOINC@Poland (or [B@P] Daniel) with the first place by total credit!

Server upgrade shifted to May 24th, 06:00-16:00 UTC
Dear crunchers,

the server's hardware upgrade (hopefully the final one!) is planned for tomorrow, May 24th, 06:00-16:00 UTC. We are sorry for shifting it once again. It is due to the fact that the server is shared with other people's projects, including a local ShareLaTeX server of the institute.

Have a good day!

Weekend news, 5 new types of graphs discovered!
Dear folks!

We present the next 5 types of graphs, discovered in RakeSearch project.

The first one [R9_000040159/01] looks like a flower. Many squares of this set are orthogonal to the 2 squares, placed in the center of the graph, and during the drawing graph edges formed a "petal figure". 32 verticles and 62 edges are necessary for the growth of this flower. :)

The second one [R9_000040275/01] - is big, second by size in entire set of graphs, that found in project today. 61824 verticles and 374064 edges construct a net with several "centers of gravity" linked by bunches of edges. Also we can see animation (8.3 Mb) with filling of this graph.

The third one [R9_000040835/01] - comprises from 154 verticles and 1263 edges (5th by size on today!) emerging to ... a jungle flower?

The forth one [R9_000040839/02] brings us to mind the animals of ancient life of Earth. Only 16 verticles and 34 edges form it.

The fifth one [R9_000041622/02] looks like significantly more modern object! Satellite? :) 24 squares fastened by 84 relationships of orthogonality are needed for build this "space telescope".

And in the end, we congratulate all participants of the 9th BOINC Pentathlon with finishing this challenge! Winners, who crunched millions of tasks and teams that completed at least one workunit! Distributed computing is remarkable and extraordinary feature of our time. And we hope that now we see only the first leaves of it.

More types of graphs discovered!
Dear participants!

On the preliminary results page, we published the next 7 types of the graphs of orthogonal diagonal Latin squares (ODLS), discovered in RakeSearch project. Each type was published in form of its first instance, found in project.

The first one, R9_000038399/02, is big and consist of 9056 verticles and 45976 edges. Also, you can see an animation of it detalization: from skeleton to all edges:

The second one, R9_000038401/03, is a medium-size graph of 52 verticles and 122 edges:

The third one, R9_000038428/01, is a small brick wall and consist of 8 verticles and 10 edges.

The fourth one, R9_000038818/02, is an unknown non-Earth figure, a medium size graph, of 24 vericles and 72 edges:

The fifth one, R9_000038818/04, is a bit like a bird and contains 36 verticles and 88 edges:

The sixth one, R9_000039774/01, is like... Bootes constellation? Or frog? In any case - it is a graph of 6 verticles and 6 edges:

The seventh, R9_000039963/04, is like another well known asterism - the brightest stars of Delphinius constellation! 5 verticles and 5 edges:

Upgrade of project server infrastructure
Hello folks!

We congratulate everyone with the start of 9th BOINC Pentathlon! And we have another reason for high spirits - yesterday's upgrade of the project server infrastructure! Some hardware in the news!

1. DRAM banks and CPU for server upgrade:

2. Server with VM of our project (in center, second from the top):

3. Servers rack (many of units are empty, but in the lower half there is a blade system of a computing cluster) and the power unit:

4. Rackmount server. We faced a socket without a heatsink (in some servers heatsinks are supplied for all sockets, in some - not) and yesterday completed a first stage of the "upgrade plan": server memory was replaced by new banks of twice larger volume. After the search of a heatsink will be completed, the second CPU will be installed with the original DRAM banks (in one way or another in DRAM slots) if the motherboard allows such configuration. Otherwise we install these DRAM banks into another server. After new DRAM installation and expanding memory of the project VM, we were able to increase MySQL caches for rows storage and processing. Hope that this makes project server work more fast, smooth and predictable.

The Graph.
Dear participants!

We announce a few next types of graphs, discovered in RakeSearch project.
First of them - R9_000034562/01 ("m/n" denote that these graph deduced at n pair of ODLS from result of workunit m) consist of 10 nodes and 20 edges:

Next - R9_000034858/01 - have 6 nodes with 9 edges and looks like a rocket:

Third - R9_000036897/02 - slightly more complicated - 32 nodes with 104 edges:

- but many other previously published graphs have similar properties.

Fourth graph in this bunch - R9_000037121/02 - 28 nodes with 88 edges, can be draw in some funny form:

Fifth graph - R9_000037218/01 - much larger than previous graphs - 210 nodes with 1524 edges! In some parts of it we see a radial symmetry, in some - no any symmetries:

Sixth graph - R9_000037988/01 - the main "star" of this "press-release" - much more larger. At the moment - the largest of the known graph consisting of ODLS. It includes 649728 squares that connected between themselves by 3178752 relationships of orthogonality! It's a really big graph! On figure below drawn only on 4% of this edges and to better understand its grandiosity you may see this animation (19 Mb!)

But who knows - what wonders wait us in next bunch of results?

New graphs of ODLSs published!
Dear crunchers!

We welcome spring (and 7 months of the project's work) by publishing newly discovered graphs of ODLSs found by you, figures 19-27.

Currently we are working on graph representation and comparison methods, which will allow to analyze the results. This will also allow to implement an idea proposed by Michael H.W. Weber to display personal discoveries on the project website.

Thank you for participation, and happy crunching!


Дорогие кранчеры!

С началом весны мы празднуем 7 месяцев работы проекта и публикуем новые найденные графы ОДЛК, рисунки 19-27.

Сейчас мы работаем над методами представления и сравнения графов, которые помогут проанализировать результаты проекта. Они также помогут реализовать идею, предложенную Michael H.W. Weber -- отображать индивидуальные находки участника в его аккаунте на сайте проекта.

Спасибо за ваше участие, и счастливого кранчинга!

Current results of RakeSearch in graph form
Dear participants of the project,

we start to present the current results in graph form. As we already wrote, the scientific goal of the project is to reveal subsets structures of orthogonal diagonal Latin squares of rank 9. A good form to represent such subsets is a graph. Each its vertice is a single square, and an edge between two vertices means that these two squares are orthogonal. The considered graphs are of great interest when one studies ODLSs with fundamental or applied goals.

With help of the RakeSearch algorithm, we discover separate vertices of such graphs. The RakeSearch algorithm implies that not every possible pair of ODLSs can be found, but only those that can be obtained by rows permutations. Such squares are being "hooked" like jewels among the withered grass. And then, using post-processing, we restore the whole graph.

So far, we have discovered 18 types of such graphs. The first one is the "Necklace". There are multiple instances of each graph type. The most common type is the simple pair. Our special thanks go to Stepan Kochemazov and Eduard Vatutin (evatutin) for their ideas and work used for implementing post-processing programs! Visualization was implemented with Gephi software.

We hope that graph form of results will be interesting to you!
Good luck and happy crunching!

RakeSearch project technical update 2018-01-06
Dear participants!

During ~5 months of life, the project has significantly grown up and we want to thank all participants for that. Today there have been processed more than 1.2 mln of workunits (from ~23.3 mln of the entire set), which gave us several thousands of results with "permutational" orthogonal diagonal Latin squares and interesting search for structures constructed by these squares and squares orthogonal to them (like previously published "Necklace"). We automated many tasks which are needed for everyday project work and consumed most of time, and started deeper work with received results.

Also we encountered mismatch of current format of results publishing (as simple HTML plain page with list of ODLS pairs) with their essence and after publishing last results from December we stop to publish it in this form and start creating another interface for viewing, searching and filtering the results. Of course, we keep the tradition of congratulating participants who found the orthogonal squares. And granting them badges, too. :) And, of course, after completion of postprocessing all results will be published - at least in "raw" format.

Another important thing is the optimization of default app. We plan to implement Daniel's optimizations into it, but after setting up results postprocessing because any participant already can download and use optimized application (for many platforms!) by links from the corresponding thread.

Hope that this "technical update" makes the project life more clear to you. Thank you for your participation and happy crunching!

"A treasure captured! The "Necklace" subset of orthogonal diagonal Latin squares has been found!"
Early morning of 15 December 2017 with 2 hours and 22 minutes difference, project server received two results for workunit R9_000478253 - from damotbe (L'Alliance Francophone) and Bryan (SETI.USA). Both files are identical (as it must be for correct results) and contain an 8 squares. Many of computation results contain 8 and even more squares, but is this case only first two of them corresponds to usual pair of ODLS, but other 6 squares... were mutually orthogonal! (And, of course, all of this squares were constructed by rows permutation!)

We get a first of squares from this MODLS set and found all (not only "permutation") orthogonal diagonal Latin squares for it, then - all ODLS for "root square" and the squares, found on the previous step, and repeat this process until while we were given a new squares. The results of this search you can see in figure below.

Squares, presented in this graph as nodes and edges denote an orthogonal relationship between squares, lined up into astonishing, symmetrical figure! The core of it is fastened by six MODLS, which are broken into three groups. Each group (originating from two squares) is the basis for four-level branch constructed from 14 squares.

If you are interested in this, you can download this set of 48 squares.

The last part of November and the first part of December results!
Dear participants!

We announce the last part of November results and the first part of results achieved in December. As usual you can view them on results page, but attentive crunchers can notice a new form of results (like R9_000114849, for example) - with one square in row. Square in this line is a square orthogonal to the square in previous column, that written above. This square (in line above) is orthogonal to more than one diagonal Latin squares simultaneously.

Participants that found new pairs of orthogonal diagonal Latin squares (ODLS) in November achieve a "Perelman proof anniversary badge", but for pairs, found in December and later we introduce a Rowan badge - a tree with delicious berries growing in the forests of Karelia and many other regions.

The entropy formula for the Ricci flow and its geometric applications
Ricci flow with surgery on three-manifolds
Finite extinction time for the solutions to the Ricci flow on certain three-manifolds

Request to reset the project
Dear participants,

due to the problems with app_version, the tasks received by BOINC clients will probably crash. If you experience the errors, we kindly ask you to cancel them and reset the project. New tasks are being generated with new attributes and should work fine. We increased the estimated flops and the upper bound of flops to avoid errors "Exceeded elapsed time limit".

Also, we are sorry that on October 10 the project server was unavailable because of unplanned power cuts.

We are grateful for you patience and support!

Дорогие участники вычислений!

Из-за проблем с app_version текущие задания, скорее всего, закончатся с ошибкой. Если у вас возникают ошибки, то, пожалуйста, отмените текущие задания и сделайте Reset проекта. Новые задания будут сгенерированы на сервере с новыми свойствами и должны работать нормально. Мы повысили оценку числа flops и верхнюю границу допустимого числа flops, чтобы избежать ошибок "Exceeded elapsed time limit".

Просим прощения, что 10 октября сервер проекта был недоступен - произошло несколько отключений электричества из-за аварии.

Очень благодарны вам за терпение и поддержку!

Temporary disabled account creation
Dear crunchers!

Due to today's invasion by many new (empty, bot-generated) accounts, we temporarily disabled both the web account creation and the account creation in general. We also deleted suspicious accounts. If your account was accidently deleted at that time, we are very sorry and you are welcome back.

Дорогие кранчеры!

В связи с нашествием ботов, мы временно отключили создание аккаунтов и удалили подозрительные аккаунты. Если Ваш аккаунт случайно попал под горячую руку, то мы просим прощения и с радостью создадим его снова.
