Exa-Dune – Flexible PDE Solvers, Numerical Methods and Applications

11/04/2019 ∙ by Peter Bastian, et al. ∙ 0

In the Exa-Dune project we have developed, implemented and optimised numerical algorithms and software for the scalable solution of partial differential equations (PDEs) on future exascale systems exhibiting a heterogeneous massively parallel architecture. In order to cope with the increased probability of hardware failures, one aim of the project was to add flexible, application-oriented resilience capabilities into the framework. Continuous improvement of the underlying hardware-oriented numerical methods have included GPU-based sparse approximate inverses, matrix-free sum-factorisation for high-order discontinuous Galerkin discretisations as well as partially matrix-free preconditioners. On top of that, additional scalability is facilitated by exploiting massive coarse grained parallelism offered by multiscale and uncertainty quantification methods where we have focused on the adaptive choice of the coarse/fine scale and the overlap region as well as the combination of local reduced basis multiscale methods and the multilevel Monte-Carlo algorithm. Finally, some of the concepts are applied in a land-surface model including subsurface flow and surface runoff.
