Ookami [3] is a computer technology testbed supported by the United States National Science Foundation. It provides researchers with access to the A64FX processor developed by Fujitsu [17] in collaboration with RIKΞN [35, 37] for the Japanese path to exascale computing, as deployed in Fugaku [36], the fastest computer in the world [34]. By focusing on crucial architectural details, the ARM-based, multi-core, 512-bit SIMD-vector processor with ultrahigh-bandwidth memory promises to retain… Expand

Legion: Expressing locality and independence with logical regions
A runtime system that dynamically extracts parallelism from Legion programs, using a distributed, parallel scheduling algorithm that identifies both independent tasks and nested parallelism. Expand
Introducing OpenSHMEM: SHMEM for the PGAS community
An OpenSHMEM specification is proposed to help tie together a number of divergent implementations of SHMEM that are currently available, and there will be a wider availability of a PGAS library model on current and future architectures. Expand
Flash: An adaptive mesh hydrodynamics code for modeling astrophysical thermonuclear flashes
We report on the completion of the first version of a new-generation simulation code, FLASH. The FLASH code solves the fully compressible, reactive hydrodynamic equations and allows for the use ofExpand
