PFASST-ER: combining the parallel full approximation scheme in space and time with parallelization across the method

This work couple PFASST with a parallel spectral deferred correction (SDC) method, forming an unprecedented doubly time-parallel integrator, which works more efficiently than the classical variants ofPFASST and can use more processors than time-steps.

Time-parallel simulation of the Schrödinger Equation

A parallel-in-time approach for accelerating direct-adjoint studies

GParareal: A time-parallel ODE solver using Gaussian process emulation

A time-parallel algorithm that solves IVPs by modelling the correction term, i.e. the difference between coarse solutions and coarse solutions, using a Gaussian process emulator is proposed and it is demonstrated, on a number of IVPs, that GParareal can converge in fewer iterations than parareal, leading to an increase in parallel speed-up.

Applications of time parallelization

This review article serves to summarize the many advances in time-parallel computations since the excellent review article by Gander, “50 years of Time Parallel Integration” (Gander, in: 50 years of

Dedalus: A flexible framework for numerical simulations with spectral methods

The numerical method is a first-order generalized tau formulation that discretizes equations into banded matrices that is implemented with an object-oriented design and the design and implementation of the Dedalus codebase is described.



Time domain parallelization for computational geodynamics

It is shown that under optimum conditions, the parallel speedup increases linearly with the number of processors, and speedups close to 10 were measured, using only few tens of CPUs.

Performance benchmarks for a next generation numerical dynamo model

Numerical simulations of the geodynamo have successfully represented many observable characteristics of the geomagnetic field, yielding insight into the fundamental processes that generate magnetic

Scalability of pseudospectral methods for geodynamo simulations

Using a pseudospectral method, the most widely used method for simulating the geodynamo, computational requirements needed to run simulations in an ‘Earth‐like’ parameter regime are explored theoretically by approximating operation counts, memory requirements and communication costs in the asymptotic limit of large problem size.

Numerical calculations of fast dynamos in smooth velocity fields with realistic diffusion

MANY astrophysical magnetic fields are thought to arise by dynamo action due to internal fluid motions, but the natural timescale for magnetic field growth is the diffusion timescale, which in

Parallel-in-Space-and-Time Simulation of the Three-Dimensional, Unsteady Navier-Stokes Equations for Incompressible Flow

This paper combines the Parareal parallel-in-time method together with spatial parallelization and investigates this space-time parallel scheme by means of solving the three-dimensional incompressible Navier-Stokes equations, confirming that the space- time-parallel method can provide speedup beyond the saturation of the spatial parallelizations.

Turbulent geodynamo simulations: a leap towards Earth's core

We present an attempt to reach realistic turbulent regime in direct numerical simulations of the geodynamo. We rely on a sequence of three convection-driven simulations in a rapidly rotating

Time-parallel simulation of the decay of homogeneous turbulence using Parareal with spatial coarsening

It is shown that a single Parareal iteration is able to reproduce with high fidelity the main statistical quantities characterizing the turbulent flow field with respect to speedup and quality of the solution.

Parallel in time algorithms for quantum control: Parareal time discretization scheme

The theoretical modifications required to apply the “parareal” time algorithm to control problems and more specifically to the problems of quantum control are the main topic of this article.
