The flourishing of simulation-based scientific discovery has also resulted in the emergence of the UQ discipline, which is essential for validating and verifying computer models.

Project

These Fortran solvers tackle the initial value problem for ODE systems. The collection includes solvers for systems given in both explicit and linearly implicit forms.

Project

zfp is an open-source C/C++ library for compressed floating-point and integer arrays that support high throughput read and write random access.

Project

These methods for solving hyperbolic wave propagation problems allow for complex geometries, realistic boundary and interface conditions, and arbitrary heterogeneous material properties.

Project

Performance analysis of parallel scientific codes is difficult. The HAC model allows direct comparison of data across domains with data viz and analysis tools available in other domains.

Project

Fast Global File Status (FGFS) is an open-source package that provides scalable mechanisms and programming interfaces to retrieve global information of a file.

Project

Caliper enables users to build customized performance measurement and analysis solutions by connecting independent context annotations, measurement services, and data processing services.

Project

Livermore researchers are enhancing HARVEY, an open-source parallel fluid dynamics application designed to model blood flow in patient-specific geometries.

Project

MPI_T is an interface for tools introduced in the 3.0 version of MPI. The interface provides mechanisms for tools to access and set performance and control variables that are exposed by an MPI implementation.

Project

Cram lets you easily run many small MPI jobs within a single, large MPI job by splitting MPI_COMM_WORLD up into many small communicators to run each job in the cram file independently.

Project

libMSR provides a convenient interface to access Model Specific Registers and to allow tools to utilize their full functionality.

Project

Spindle improves the library-loading performance of dynamically linked HPC applications by plugging into the system’s dynamic linker and intercepting its file operations.

Project

PnMPI is a thin, low-overhead wrapper library that is automatically generated from mpi.h file and that can be linked by default.

Project

This genome sequencing technology helps accelerate the comparison of genetic fragments with reference genomes and improve the accuracy of the results as compared to previous technologies.

Project

This tool that automatically diagnoses performance and correctness faults in MPI applications. It identifies abnormal MPI tasks and code regions and finds the least-progressed task.

Project

A new, complex memory/storage hierarchy is emerging, with persistent memories offering greatly expanded capacity, and augmented by DRAM/SRAM cache and scratchpads to mitigate latency.

Project

These techniques emulate the behavior of anticipated future architectures on current machines to improve performance modeling and evaluation.

Project

With SCR, jobs run more efficiently, recover more work upon failure, and reduce load on critical shared resources.

Project

This project constructs coarse time grids and uses each solution to improve the next finer-scale solution, simultaneously updating a solution guess over the entire space-time domain.

Project

Peter Robinson develops major infrastructure components and code development processes for ALE3D, a numerical simulation tool.
