Exascale: Preparing PETSc/TAO Software for Scientific Applications

In this episode of the Let’s Talk Exascale podcast, produced by  DOE’s Exascale Computing Project, the topic is PETSc—the Portable, Extensible Toolkit for Scientific Computation. It’s a suite of data structures and routines for the scalable (parallel) solution of scientific applications modeled by partial differential equations. A team within ECP is preparing PETSc/TAO for exascale […]

Video: Extreme-Scale Multigrid Components within PETSc

In this video from the PASC16 conference, Patrick Sanan from USi Lugano & ETC Zurich presents: Extreme-Scale Multigrid Components within PETSc. “Elliptic partial differential equations (PDEs) frequently arise in continuum descriptions of physical processes relevant to science and engineering. Multilevel preconditioners represent a family of scalable techniques for solving discrete PDEs of this type and thus are the method of choice for high-resolution simulations.”
