Research overview:
The parallel algorithms and techniques are studied and developed on the basis of the classification of typical numerical simulation models and techniques employed in the computational science and engineering. By selecting the representative programs, parallel performcnce models and evaluation methods are developed on different parallel computers. The development of the parallel library, called “PARCEL(Parallel Computing Elements)”, which contains fundamental numerical calculations required in computational science and engineering, is underway for enabling the routines to be executed on different parallel architectures. The MPI(Message-Passing Interface) is being used throughout to constuct portable libraries. Fundamental parallel routines such as matrix calculations for a system of linear algebraic equations and eigenvalue problems, random number generators, and the fast Fourier transforms are being developed. Parallel performance of PARCEL has been evaluated using programs on the tight-binding and first principle molecular dynamics, finite element method for structural analysis, and spectral method for turbulence research.
