The general objective of the project is to setup a multidisciplinary Brazil-France collaborative effort for taking full benefits of future high-performance massively parallel architectures. The targets are the very large-scale datasets and numerical simulations relevant to a selected set of applications in natural sciences: (i) resource prospection, (ii) reservoir simulation, (iii) ecological modeling, (iv) astronomy data management, and (v) simulation data management. The project involves computer scientists and numerical mathematicians divided in 3 fundamental research groups: (i) numerical schemes for PDE models, (ii) scientific data management, and (iii) high-performance software systems. Several Brazilian institutions are participating to the project among which: LNCC (Laboratório Nacional de Computaçäo Científica), COPPE/UFRJ (Instituto Alberto Luiz Coimbra de Pós-Graduaçäo e Pesquisa de Engenharia/Alberto Luiz Coimbra Institute for Graduate Studies and Research in Engineering, Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro), INF/UFRGS (Instituto de Informática, Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul) and LIA/UFC (Laboratórios de Pesquisa em Ciência da Computaçäo Departamento de Computaçäo, Universidade Federal do Ceará). The French partners are research teams from several Inria research centers.


We are mainly interested in the derivation of numerical methods (discontinuous Galerkin approximation, space-time refinement), the design of direct and inverse high performance solver, and the modeling of complex media.

More precisely, we are actually interested in

  1. the computation of truncated Singular Value decomposition of very large matrix to analyze the inverse problem;

  2. the coupling of a discontinuous Galerkin method with a finite differences method for the direct problem;

  3. a spectral time stepping method for the direct problem;

  4. an algorithm to determine an impedance coefficient using indirect measurement.

An international workshop on “Computational Geophysics” gathering around 50 participants has been organized in Novosibirsk in the framework of GEO3D in September 2014
