  1. 1. Domain-based partitioning for parallel SAMR applications

    University dissertation from Uppsala universitet

    Author : Johan Steensland; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Numerical Analysis; Numerisk analys;

    Abstract : This thesis presents a study of domain-based partitioning techniques for dynamic structured grid hierarchies, occuring in structured adaptive mesh refinement (SAMR) methods. Such methods for obtaining the numerical solution to partial differential equations yield highly advantageous ratios for cost/accuracy as compared to methods based upon static uniform approximations.

  2. 2. Efficient Partitioning of Dynamic Structured Grid Hierarchies

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Johan Steensland; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; scientific computing; partitioning; structured grids; adaptive mesh refinement; dynamic load balancing; Scientific Computing; Beräkningsvetenskap;

    Abstract : This thesis aims at decreasing execution time for large-scale structured adaptive mesh refinement (SAMR) applications executing on general parallel computers. The key contributions are (1) A conceptual dynamically adaptive meta-partitioner able to select and configure an appropriate partitioning technique, based on application and computer state, and (2) A characterization of new and existing domain-based partitioners, enabling a mapping from application and computer state onto appropriate partitioners, and (3) Sketched scalable solutions, expressed in terms of natural regions and expert algorithms, for the problem to efficiently partition large-scale SAMR applications with deep grid hierarchies executing on general parallel computers, and (4) A software partitioning tool Nature+Fable, implementing the greater parts of these sketched scalable solutions and engineered as part of the meta-partitioner.
