We construct parallel finite element methods for the solution of hyperbolic conservation laws in one and two dimensions. Spatial discretization is performed by a discontinuous Galerkin finite element method using a basis of piecewise Legendre polynomials. Temporal discretization utilizes a Runge-Kutta method. Dissipative fluxes and projection limiting(More)
Consideration is given to the techniques required to support adaptive analysis of automatically generated unstruc-tured meshes on distributed memory MIMD parallel computers. The key areas of new development are focused on the support of effective parallel computations when the structure of the numerical discretization, the mesh, is evolving, and in fact(More)
Data partitioning and load balancing are important components of parallel computations. Many different partitioning strategies have been developed, with great effectiveness in parallel applications. But the load-balancing problem is not yet solved completely; new applications and architectures require new partitioning features. Existing algorithms must be(More)
We present a high-order formulation for solving hyperbolic conservation laws using the Discon-tinuous Galerkin Method (DGM). We introduce an orthogonal basis for the spatial discretization and use explicit Runge-Kutta time discretization. Some results of higher-order adaptive refinement calculations are presented for in-viscid Rayleigh Taylor flow(More)
An adaptive technique for a partial diierential system automatically adjusts a computational mesh or varies the order of a numerical procedure to obtain a solution satisfying prescribed accuracy criteria in an optimal fashion. We describe data structures for distributed storage of nite element mesh data as well as software for mesh adaptation, load(More)
Fumonisins are a group of mycotoxins that contaminate maize and cause leukoencephalomalacia in equine, pulmonary edema in swine, and promote cancer in mice. Fumonisin biosynthesis in Fusarium verticillioides is repressed by nitrogen and alkaline pH. We cloned a PACC-like gene (PAC1) from F. verticillioides. PACC genes encode the major transcriptional(More)
In parallel simulations, partitioning and load-balancing algorithms compute the distribution of application data and work to processors. The effectiveness of this distribution greatly influences the performance of a parallel simulation. Decompositions that balance processor loads while keeping the application's communication costs low are preferred.(More)
Although researchers can develop software on small, local clusters and move it later to larger clusters and supercomputers, the software must run efficiently in both environments. Two efforts aim to improve the efficiency of scientific computation on clusters through resource-aware dynamic load balancing. The popularity of cost-effective clusters built from(More)
