ExaFMM: An open source library for Fast Multipole Methods aimed towards Exascale systems
Poster featured on the NVIDIA booth at the Supercomputing Conference, November 2011, Seattle, WA.
The fast multipole method (FMM) is a numerical engine used in many applications, from acoustics, electrostatics, fluid simulations, wave scattering, and more.
Despite its importance, there is a lack of open community code, which arguably has affected its wider adoption. It is also a difficult algorithm to understand and to program, making availability of open-source implementations even more desirable.
ExaFMM is an open-source code base to utilize fast multipole algorithms, in parallel, and with GPU capability. The name reflects our viewpoint of the fast multipole method (FMM) as a rising star in the development of high-performance computing towards Exascale.
