Scale-Up Implementation of a Transportation Network Using Ant Colony Optimization (ACO)

In this article an OpenMP* based implementation of the Ant Colony Optimization algorithm was analyzed for bottlenecks with Intel® VTune™ Amplifier XE 2016 together with improvements using hybrid MPI-OpenMP and Intel® Threading Building Blocks were introduced to achieve efficient scaling across a four-socket Intel® Xeon® processor E7-8890 v4 processor-based system.

Hybrid Parallelism: A MiniFE* Case Study

This case study examines the situation where the problem decomposition is the same for threading as it is for Message Passing Interface* (MPI); that is, the threading parallelism is elevated to the same level as MPI parallelism.
