  3. GPU-Accelerated Sparse Matrix Solvers for Large-Scale Simulations

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: S601

    At the heart of scientific computing and numerical analysis are linear algebra solvers. In scientific computing, the focus is on the partial differential equations (PDEs) that arise from computational fluid dynamics (CFD), climate modeling, astrophysics, and structural and heat analysis that cannot be solved analytically. Certain problem formulations lead to sparse matrices, in which the majority ...
