On optimization of finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) computation on heterogeneous and GPU clusters

Shams, Ramtin; Sadeghi, Parastoo


A model for the computational cost of the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method irrespective of implementation details or the application domain is given. The model is used to formalize the problem of optimal distribution of computational load to an arbitrary set of resources across a heterogeneous cluster. We show that the problem can be formulated as a minimax optimization problem and derive analytic lower bounds for the computational cost. The work provides insight into optimal design...[Show more]
