(Brochure) ExaFMM: An open source library for Fast Multipole Methods
Poster sessions are particularly prominent at academic conferences. Posters are usually one frame of a powerpoint (or similar) presentation and are represented at full resolution to make them zoomable.
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
- 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/
