Abstract:

The performance of modern supercomputers is to a large extent due to
the addition of hardware accelerators such as GPUs and Xeon Phis.
Accelerators potentially provide higher performance at lower system
and energy cost, but their usage results in higher system complexity,
which makes designing efficient simulation codes more difficult. In
this talk, we give an overview of the current HPC landscape and show
how large scale simulations on irregular meshes can be implemented in
order to make full use of heterogeneous computational resources.
