I am currently carrying out independent research on Monte Carlo techniques for weak lensing experiments (in relation to Euclid forecasts), and I'm being held up by lack of computing power. It takes more than 24 hours to calculate even a simple weak lensing Fisher matrix on my laptop (using CAMB for the transfer function). To explore the full likelihood space would require a computer cluster.

It is quite embarrassing to be standing here with a begging bowl on CosmoCoffee, but there is no other option.

I am therefore putting out a call for access to a computer cluster with IDL installed (my weak lensing code is based on iCosmo). Of course the institute would be fully acknowledged in any publication.

Thanks
