Large Scale Particle Fusion Algorithm for Tracing Systems in Fluid Mechanics Applications

Participant : Bérenger Bramas.

Bérenger Bramas worked with Michael Wilczek and Cristian Lalescu (Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization) in designing a new method to merge particles in a large scale application (i.e., designed to run on thousands of computing nodes). In this context, the particles are originally used in a tracing system to extract information from a vector field in fluid mechanics. However, the physicists are now interested having the particles interacting and even fusioning. Due to the constraints of large scale computing, the system tries to reduce the number and amount of communications. This development has been done in the TurTLE application (not publicly available) and is currently under evaluation.
