  1. Data-Centric Models for Multilevel Algorithms

    07 Feb 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Samuel Guiterrez

    Today, computational scientists must contend with a diverse set of supercomputer architectures that are capable of exposing unprecedented levels of parallelism and complexity. Effectively placing, moving, and operating on data residing in complex distributed memory hierarchies is quickly...

  2. Discretization of Elliptic Differential Equations Using Sparse Grids and Prewavelets

    04 Feb 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Christoph Pflaum

    Sparse grids can be used to discretize second order elliptic differential equations on a d-dimensional cube. Using Galerkin discretization, we obtain a linear equation system with  unknowns. The corresponding discretization error is  in the -norm. A major difficulty in...

  3. Ferroelectric BaTiO3 Nanowires: Synthesis, Properties, and Device Applications

    12 Feb 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Zhaoyu Wang

    One dimensional ferroelectric nanowires have attracted much attention due to its interests in fundamental physics and potential applications in Nanoelectromechanical Systems (NEMS), non-volatile ferroelectric memories, and sensors.

Fabrication of nano-scale metallic features with controlled geometry has so far relied on lithographic processes that are...

  6. High Dimensional Uncertainty Quantification via Multilevel Monte Carlo

    02 Feb 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Hillary Fairbanks

    Multilevel Monte Carlo (MLMC) has been shown to be a cost effective way to compute moments of desired quantities of interest in stochastic partial differential equations when the uncertainty in the data is high-dimensional. In this talk, we investigate the improved performance of MLMC versus...

  7. HPGMG: Benchmarking Computers Using Multigrid

    02 Feb 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Jed Brown

    HPGMG (https://hpgmg.org) is a geometric multigrid benchmark designed to measure the performance and versatility of computers. For a benchmark to be representative of applications, good performance on the benchmark should be sufficient to ensure good performance on most important applications...

  8. Hub Snub: Removing Vertices with High Degree from Coarse-grid Correction

    02 Feb 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Geoffry Sanders

    Network scientists often employ numerical solutions to linear systems as subroutines of data mining algorithms. Due to the ill-conditioned nature of the systems, obtaining solutions with standard iterative methods is often prohibitively costly; current research aims to automatically construct...
