SESSION: Monte Carlo Methods An Old Emerging Technology in High-Performance Computing as a Path to the Exascale and Beyond

EVENT TYPE: Emerging Technologies

TIME: 4:30PM - 4:50PM

Presenter(s):Michael Mascagni

ROOM:Booth 3947

Recent developments in Monte Carlo methods (MCMs) for the solution of partial differential equations (PDEs) provide new algorithms that are computationally competitive with traditional deterministic methods for many problems. In fact, there are a variety of new Monte Carlo method alternatives to a variety of numerical computations traditionally solved with deterministic methods. Besides the fact that in certain circumstances these new MCMs are faster than deterministic methods, MCMs have some generic properties that make them especially interesting from the high-performance computing point-of-view. Thus, MCMs offer a very different computational paradigm for the computation of many numerical problems. They offer many desirable numerical properties, and they are so compute intensive, that a distributed Monte Carlo computation can be undertaken quite efficiently on a very loosely coupled collection of computing resources. MCMs can take advantage of relatively cheap computational resources and can be expected to achieve high levels of parallel efficiency.
