Title: A Memory Centric Kernel Framework for Accelerating Short-Range,
Interactive Particle Simulation
To maximize the performance of emerging multi- and many-core
accelerators such as the IBM Cell B.E. and the NVIDIA GPU, a Memory
Centric Kernel Framework (MCKF) was developed. MCKF allows a user to
decompose the physical space of an application based on the available
fast memory in the accelerators. In this way, reducing the
communication cost in accessing data can maximize the extraordinary
computing power of the accelerators. MCKF is both generic and
flexible because it encapsulates hardware-specific characteristics.
It has been implemented and tested for short-range interactive
particle simulation on IBM Cell B.E. blades.
