This paper presents preliminary evaluation of the hybrid parallelization of the Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) method based on Open Computing Language (OpenCL) and the Message Passing Interface (MPI). Due to the portability of OpenCL, developed code targets not only distributed shared memory computer clusters based on multi-core central processing(More)
In this paper we evaluate the usability and performance of Open Computing Language (OpenCL) targeted for implementation of the Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) method. The simulation speed was compared to implementations based on alternative techniques of parallel processor programming. Moreover, the portability of OpenCL FDTD code between modern(More)
Microtubules are dynamic polymers that occur in eukaryotic cells and play important roles in cell division, motility, transport and signaling. They form during the process of polymerization of α- and β-tubulin dimers. Tubulin is a significant and heavily researched molecular target for anticancer drugs. Combretastatins are natural cis-stilbenes that exhibit(More)
— We provide an overview of our work to date on the parallelization of implicit time domain methods, in particular the alternating direction implicit finite-difference time-domain method (ADI-FDTD). First we describe a domain decomposition scheme for parallel ADI-FDTD in three dimensions that is suitable for implementation on widely available high(More)
Resveratrol is the most extensively studied stilbene derivative. We previously showed that methylthiostilbenes were more effective inhibitors of CYP1A1 and 1B1 activity than resveratrol. In this study, we investigated whether resveratrol and its methylthio-substituted derivatives, i.e. 3-M-4′-MTS (S2), 3,5-DM-4′-MTS (S5) and 3,4,5-TM-4′-MTS (S7) could(More)
