Distributed objects and components for high performance scientific computing (DiscoGrid)
Participants : Françoise Baude [ OASIS project-team, INRIA Sophia Antipolis - Méditerranée ] , Serge Chaumette [ LABRi, Bordeaux ] , Thierry Gautier [ ID-IMAG, MOAIS team, Grenoble ] , Hervé Guillard [ SMASH and PUMAS project-teams, INRIA Sophia Antipolis - Méditerranée ] , Stéphane Lanteri, Christian Perez [ PARIS project-team, IRISA Rennes ] .
This project was funded by ANR in the framework of the Calcul Intensif et Grilles de Calcul program and has ended this year. The DiscoGrid project aimed at studying and promoting a new paradigm for programming non-embarrassingly parallel scientific computing applications on distributed, heterogeneous, computing platforms. A hierarchical SPMD (Single Program Multiple Data) programming model has been proposed and successfully applied to the parallelization of a DGTD- method formulated on tetrahedral meshes for the solution of the 3D time domain Maxwell equations  .
