  journal={2013 42nd International Conference on Parallel Processing},
The paper presents X-KAAPI, a compact runtime for multicore architectures that brings multi parallel paradigms (parallel independent loops, fork-join tasks and dataflow tasks) in a unified framework without performance penalty. Comparisons on independent loops with OpenMP and on dense linear algebra with QUARK/PLASMA confirm our design decisions. Applied to EUROPLEXUS, an industrial simulation code for fast transient dynamics, we show that X-KAAPI achieves high speedups on multicore… CONTINUE READING
