HPC Problem Solving Environments
The aim of this research is to formulate and develop HPC infrastructure, including scalable libraries of legacy partial differential equations (PDE) software, kernels for parallel reuse PDE methodologies, new parallel PDE libraries, problem solving environments, and underlying theories needed to support multidisciplinary physical prototyping in the classroom, laboratory, desk, and factory.
An object-oriented approach is used with multiple levels. At the top level are large complex objects like PDE PROBLEM, NUMERICAL PDE PROBLEM, SPECIFICATIONS, and SOLUTION. At the bottom are utiliy objects like BLAS (Basic Linear Algebra Subroutines) to manipulate vectors and arrays. Each object has substantial identifying information about its type, capabilities, properties, and interface requirements. This allows the structure to be open ended.
