Interested in this webinar? See more webinars like this. Speaker Prof. Jeffrey S. Dunham, Professor of Physics, Middlebury College Prof. Jeffrey S. Dunham has taught physics for 34 years at Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vermont, where he is now William R. Kenan Jr. Professor of Natural Sciences. He currently conducts experimental research in nonlinear dynamics. He is using HPC techniques at the workstation level to analyze large data sets from experiments that can be performed in a small-college laboratory. He received the Bachelor of Science degree in physics from the University of Washington in 1975 and the Ph.D. in physics from Stanford University in 1981. Presentation Savitzky-Golay Filter Algorithm for Large One-Dimensional Data Sets A chaotic pendulum experiment in our laboratory performs about 275 million digitized angle measurements in a 24-hour day. A Poincaré plot of the raw data shows significant and unacceptable discretization effects from the optical rotary encoder used to measure angle. The raw data is therefore passed through a Savitzky-Golay (SG) filter [...]

Demystifying Vectorization

May 18, 2017

Free Webinar Abstract Have you heard of code vectorization, but not sure how it applies to your work? Rest assured, you are in a good company. Furthermore, even seasoned computing professionals have a good excuse for not being familiar with this concept! That said, now is a great time to learn about writing vectorized code. That is because in modern Intel processors, vector instructions may speed up arithmetic instructions by up to a factor of 16. However, you must design computational code in a way that makes vector processing possible. In this 1-hour webinar I will explain what to expect from vectorization, and how to make sure that your code has it: Manual and compiler-assisted vectorization Assessing your success with vectorization Loop was vectorized – what’s next? Speaker Andrey Vladimirov, Head of HPC Research, Colfax International Dr. Andrey Vladimirov’s primary research interest is the application of modern computing technologies to computationally demanding scientific problems. Prior to joining Colfax, Andrey was involved in theoretical astrophysics [...]

April 17, 2017

Interested in this webinar? See more webinars like this. Speaker Dr. Anastasia Perepelkina, Researcher, Keldysh Institute of Applied Mathematics Dr. Anastasia Perepelkina is a researcher at the Keldysh Institute of Applied Mathematics in Moscow, Russia. Plasma particle-in-cell simulation has been her main scientific interest since the master’s program at the NRNU MEPhI and it is the topic of her PhD thesis. She is a member of the laboratory with a long history of the development of plasma simulation methods, efficient algorithms, and applications. Beyond that, she has worked on the implementation of high-order schemes in high-performance codes for stencil simulation in optics and seismology, and on the application of the resulting code. Presentation Particle-in-cell Code with LRnLA Algorithms, Performance Tests on KNL CFHall is a plasma simulation code based on a particle-in-cell method. It uses the finite difference method on a rectangular mesh for Maxwell equations, and couples it to superparticle traversal the mesh in a self-consistent approach. The uniqueness of CFHall [...]
