We present an efficient algorithm to solve the acoustic wave equation that is used to model the propagation of sound waves through a material medium. Our approach assumes that the speed of sound is constant in the medium and computes an adaptive rectangular decomposition(ARD) of the environment. We map the algorithm to many-core GPU architectures by… CONTINUE READING
