In this talk I will overview a survey paper developed from the DOE-­‐sponsored Institute for Computing in Science Workshop on " Multiphysics Simulations: Challenges and Opportunities. " In this paper, we considered multiphysics applications from algorithmic and architectural perspectives where " architectural " included both software and hardware(More)
Implicit methods for partial differential equations using unstructured meshes allow for an efficient solution strategy for many real-world problems (e.g., simulation-based virtual surgical planning). Scalable solvers employing these methods not only enable solution of extremely-large practical problems but also lead to dramatic compression in(More)
This paper introduces a general-purpose communication package built on top of MPI which is aimed at improving inter-processor communications independently of the supercomputer architecture being considered. The package is developed to support parallel applications that rely on computation characterized by large number of messages of various sizes, often(More)
The Parallel Unstructured Mesh Infrastructure (PUMI) is designed to support the representation of, and operations on, unstructured meshes as needed for the execution of mesh-based simulations on massively parallel computers. In PUMI, the mesh representation is <i>complete</i> in the sense of being able to provide any adjacency of mesh entities of multiple(More)
