Podcast: Architectural Considerations for Computing in Astrophysics

Nicole Hemsoth

Today we’ll be talking with Erik Schnetter from the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics about Chemora, a scalable partial differential equation solving framework to fit modern HPC architectures. This framework is based on Cactus, which has wide use in the general relativistic astrophysics community and serves as the springboard for advanced studies of black holes, neutron stars and more.

We will discuss the range of available architectures for applications serving the astrophysics community, talking specifically about GPUs, Xeon Phi, Blue Gene and more.
