Graduate Intern at Intel - Parallel Ray-Tracing

Ray-tracing is a classic example of an embarrassingly parallel algorithm; since each pixel is typically independent of the rest, theoretically every pixel can be done in parallel (given enough core

N-Body Simulation Project at Cal Poly

The goal of the N-Body problem is to predict the motion of a set of n objects interacting with each other by some force, e.g. the gravitational force. N-Body simulations have been used in particles simulation such as astrophysical and molecular dynamics simulations. There are a number of approaches for solving the N-Body problem, such as the Barnes-Hut algorithm, the Fast Multipole method, the...
