Multiscale computing for science and engineering in the era of exascale performance
TLDR
It is argued that although applications could scale to exascale performance relying on weak scaling and maybe even on strong scaling, there are also clear arguments that such scaling may no longer apply for many applications on these emerging exASCale machines and that the authors need to resort to multi-scaling.
Patterns for High Performance Multiscale Computing
Patterns for multiscale computing
TLDR
The loss in parallel efficiency caused by load imbalance in single scale parallel cell-based blood flow simulations is analysed and quantified in terms of the fractional load-imbalance and communication overheads.
Multiscale modelling, simulation and computing: from the desktop to the exascale
TLDR
This theme issue provides a state-of-the-art account of generic multiscale computing, as well as exciting examples of applications of such concepts in domains ranging from astrophysics, via material science and fusion, to biomedical sciences.
Towards Heterogeneous Multi-scale Computing on Large Scale Parallel Supercomputers
TLDR
It is concluded that, considering the subtle interplay between the macroscale model, surrogate models and micro-scale simulations, HMC provides a promising path towards exascale for many multiscale applications.
Scaling and Resilience in Numerical Algorithms for Exascale Computing
TLDR
A new adaptive scheduler is proposed that optimize the parallel efficiency by minimizing the time-subdomain length without making communication of time- subdomains too costly, and it is demonstrated that it is possible to obtain time-parallel speedup on the nonlinear shallow water equation, beyond what is possible using conventional spatial domain-decomposition techniques alone.
UvA-DARE ( Digital Academic Repository ) Patterns for High Performance Multiscale Computing
TLDR
The main purpose of the Multiscale Computing Patterns software is to simplify and automate the execution of complex multiscale simulations on high performance computers, and to provide both applicationspecific and pattern-specific performance optimisation.
Mastering the scales: a survey on the benefits of multiscale computing software
TLDR
The common steps in the multiscale application development process are defined and to what degree a set of 21 representative MCS tools enhance each development step are investigated and features that enhance the deployment and production Steps are desirable for the long-term success of MCS in its application fields.
Towards resilient EU HPC systems: a blueprint
TLDR
In high-performance computing (HPC) a single tightly-coupled job may execute for days on thousands of servers, requiring redundancy and/or aggressive checkpointing to prevent the whole job from failing.
Challenges of Load Balancing to Support Distributed Exascale Computing Environment
TLDR
It has been determined that if being able to redefine the load distribution based on the concept of time and considering the sensitivity to the system state at the time of load redistribution, the load balancing management can support distributed Exascale systems.

Performance of distributed multiscale simulations
TLDR
This work investigates the performance of distributed multiscales computing of component-based models, guided by six multiscale applications with different characteristics and from several disciplines, finding that the first mode has the apparent benefit of increasing simulation speed, and the second mode can increase simulation speed if local resources are limited.
