Scientists working with the Exascale Computing Project (ECP) have developed Ginkgo, a sparse linear algebra library designed to increase portability of software among heterogeneous supercomputing architectures.
Researchers supporting the development of NWChemEx, an open-source, exascale software platform for high-performance quantum chemistry simulations, have demonstrated a novel modular software design solution that can be extended to future architectures with minimal software engineering effort and provides a sustainable pathway to software development with kernels that can be plugged into many high-level algorithms.
A team funded by the Exascale Computing Project (ECP) have ported and scaled WarpX, a particle-in-cell (PIC) code for solving the motion of relativistic, charged particles in the presence of electromagnetic fields, to GPU-based supercomputers such as Summit and the upcoming Aurora and Frontier machines.
As the word exascale implies, the forthcoming generation exascale supercomputer systems will deliver 1018 flop/s of scalable computing capability.
Message Passing Interface (MPI) has been the communications backbone for distributed high-performance computing (HPC) scientific applications since its introduction in the 1990s.
The development of the VTK-m toolkit, a scientific visualization toolkit for emerging architectures, is a critical advancement in support of scientific visualization on exascale and GPU-accelerated systems for high-performance computing (HPC) users. VTK-m is needed because—counterintuitively—GPUs currently have software challenges when supporting large-scale scientific visualization tasks.
