This is a z-fold brochure, prepared to accompany our poster on the exaFMM code, presented at the Supercomputing Conference, November 2011, Seattle.

What's new? An open source FMM—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.

Headings in the brochure:

- Method: multiople-based, hierarchical

- Features

- Performance: Strong and weak scaling

- GPU relevance: Compute-bound

- Applications: Electrostatics, Turbulence Simulation

 It folds like a z-fold brochure!  Instructions: http://autobodyconsultinggrp.wordpress.com/2011/01/17/tri-fold_brochure/
