Fault Tolerant Computation of Hyperbolic Partial Differential Equations with the Sparse Grid Combination Technique

Harding, Thomas Brendan


As the computing power of supercomputers continues to increase exponentially the mean time between failures (MTBF) is decreasing. Checkpoint-restart has historically been the method of choice for recovering from failures. However, such methods become increasingly inefficient as the time required to complete a checkpoint-restart cycle approaches the MTBF. There is therefore a need to explore different ways of making computations fault tolerant. This thesis...[Show more]
