Partial Differential Equations Support

Intel® MKL provides tools for solving Partial Differential Equations (PDE) (see Partial Differential Equations Support). These tools are Trigonometric Transform interface routines and Poisson Solver.

The Trigonometric Transform routines may be helpful to users who implement their own solvers similar to the Intel MKL Poisson Solver. The users can improve performance of their solvers by using fast sine, cosine, and staggered cosine transforms implemented in the Trigonometric Transform interface.

The Poisson Solver is designed for fast solving of simple Helmholtz, Poisson, and Laplace problems. The Trigonometric Transform interface, which underlies the solver, is based on the Intel MKL FFT interface (refer to Fourier Transform Functions), optimized for Intel® processors.

Optimization Notice

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
