Update from Nicosia

After barely surviving last week’s heatwave, I’m quite pleased to report things have cooled back down in Nicosia to an almost chilly 37 degrees. In the weeks since my last post, I’ve had the good fortune to discover Nicosia’s wide

Passing a library-defined matrix over MPI

The communication of data between processes is a fundamental concept of MPI. In algorithm development one usually makes use of external dedicated linear algebra libraries (I choose Armadillo for my summer project) mainly because they are well tested, have good

Cluster Scale GPGPU with OpenCL

Previous posts about climate modeling and CESM were required as this post is the crème de la crème of CESM from my point of view. Cluster scale GPGPU seems to be very nice, on paper, but as soon as we

CESM – Modeling Earth Future Climate

CESM - High Level Component Diagram

Following the previous post, it is clear why climate modeling is performed using computers. The amount of data and computational needs of climate simulations can be significant, so supercomputers are extensively used to perform the task. In fact, THE strongest
