  author={Phillip Colella and J. Bell and Noel Keen and Terry J. Ligocki and Michael Lijewski and Brian van Straalen},
In this paper, we discuss some of the issues in obtaining high performance for block-structured adaptive mesh refinement software for partial differential equations. We show examples in which AMR scales to thousands of processors. We also discuss a number of metrics for performance and scalability that can provide a basis for understanding the advantages and disadvantages of this approach.
