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.
Many-Fermion Dynamics---nuclear, or MFDn, is a configuration interaction (CI) code for nuclear structure calculations.
Intel held the Intel® Modern Code Developer Challenge that had about 2,000 students from 130 universities in 19 countries registered to participate in the Challenge. They were provided access to Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors to optimize code used in a CERN openlab brain simulation research project. In this article Daniel Vea Falguera (Modern Code Developer Challenge winner) shares how he...
One of the Intel® Modern Code Developer Challenge winners, Daniel Falguera, describes many of the optimizations he implemented and why some didn't work.
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.
