Weather forecasting is a crucial aspect of modern life, enabling efficient planning and logistics, while also protecting life and property through timely warnings of severe conditions. But accurate, long-range weather prediction is extremely complex, often involving enormous data sets and requiring code that is optimized to leverage the most advanced computer hardware features available.
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.
