OpenMP parallelization of agent-based models

  title={OpenMP parallelization of agent-based models},
  author={Federico Massaioli and Filippo Castiglione and Massimo Bernaschi},
  journal={Parallel Computing},
Agent-based models, an emerging paradigm of simulation of complex systems, appear very suitable to parallel processing. However, during the parallelization of a simulator of financial markets, we found that some features of these codes highlight non-trivial issues of the present hardware/software platforms for parallel processing. Here we present the results of a series of tests, on different platforms, of simplified codes that reproduce such problems and can be used as a starting point in the… CONTINUE READING
