Grid partitioning is the method of choice for decomposing a wide variety o f computational problems into naturally parallel pieces. In problems where computational load on the grid or the grid itself changes a s the simulation progresses, the ability to repartition dynamically and in parallel is attractive for achieving higher performance. We describe three algorithms suitable for parallel dynamic load-balancing which attempt to partition unstructured grids so that computational load is… CONTINUE READING
