16.4-Tflops Direct Numerical Simulation of Turbulence by a Fourier Spectral Method on the Earth Simulator
TLDR
The high-resolution direct numerical simulations of incompressible turbulence with numbers of grid points up to 40963 have been executed on the Earth Simulator, based on the Fourier spectral method, and yields an energy spectrum exhibiting a wide inertial subrange, in contrast to previous DNSs with lower resolutions, and therefore provides valuable data for the study of the universal features of turbulence at large Reynolds number.

TLDR
The present method calculates the O(N log N) treecode and O (N) fast multipole method (FMM) on the GPUs with unprecedented efficiency and demonstrates the performance of the method by choosing one standard application -a gravitational N-body simulation- and one non-standard application -simulation of turbulence using vortex particles.

TLDR
Direct comparisons between the traditional random walk vortex method and the new method indicate that the newmethod has several advantages while requiring the same computational effort.
The fast multipole algorithm
TLDR
Since the development of the FMA, scientists have created various fast versions of the nearly 80-year-old Ewald method that are faster than multipole codes in some cases, although their error behavior is harder to quantify.
