25 Sep 2010   Contributor(s):: Gabriel Popescu
Often, experiments involve light beams. A light beam can be defined as a distribution of field that fulfills the approximation in Eq. 20,i.e. is characterized by a dominant wave vector component, k(z) >> k(x) , k(y) . A beam is, therefore, the spatial equivalent of quasimonochromaticlight, where...

A Fast Multigrid Approach for Solving the Helmholtz Equation with a Point Source
04 Feb 2016   Contributor(s):: Eran Treister
Solving the discretized Helmholtz equations with high wave numbers in large dimensions is a challenging task. However, in many scenarios, the solution of these equations is required for a point source. In this case, the problem can be be reformulated and split into two parts: one in a solution...

A Massively Parallel Semicoarsening Multigrid for 3D Reservoir Simulation on Multicore and MultiGPU Architectures
04 Feb 2016   Contributor(s):: Abdulrahman Manea
In this work, we have designed and implemented a massively parallel version of the Semicoarsening Black Box Multigrid Solver [1], which is capable of handling highly heterogeneous and anisotropic 3D reservoirs, on a parallel architecture with multiple GPU’s. For comparison purposes, the...

A Multigrid Method for the SelfAdjoint Angular Flux Form of the RadiationTransport Equation Based on Cellwise Block Jacobi Iteration
04 Feb 2016   Contributor(s):: Jeffrey Densmore
Cellwise block Jacobi iteration is a technique for radiationtransport calculations in which the angular flux for all directions is solved for simultaneously within a spatial cell with the angular flux in neighboring cells held fixed. Each step of the iteration then involves the inversion of a...

A Performance Comparison of Algebraic Multigrid Preconditioners on GPUs and MIC
04 Feb 2016   Contributor(s):: Karl Rupp
Algebraic multigrid (AMG) preconditioners for accelerators such as graphics processing units (GPUs) and Intel's manyintegrated core (MIC) architecture typically require a careful, problemdependent tradeoff between efficient hardware use, robustness, and convergence rate in order to...

Application of Multigrid Techniques to Magnetic and Electromagnetic Systems
04 Feb 2016   Contributor(s):: Benjamin Cowan
We discuss the use of multigrid techniques for several novel systems related to electromagnetics. One of these is the magnetostatic problem, in which systems can involve highly anisotropic and nonlinear materials. We describe the linear problems arising in several variations of this problem,...
