题目：GPU Accelerated High-order Discontinuous Galerkin Methods for Flow on a Sphere
时间： 2018年11月2日 周五下午3:00—4:00
摘要：In this talk I will discuss an approach for modeling viscous weakly compressible gas dynamics on the sphere using a Boltzmann kinetic model with Galerkin discretization in velocity space , nodal discontinuous Galerkin discretization in physical space , and either special semi-analytic adaptive Runge-Kutta or multi-rate semi-analytic linear multistep time integrators  to control grid and relaxation induced stiffness. I will also discuss initial progress on constructing a co-volume mesh based filter to further improve the time step restriction for high-order spatial discretizations .
Finally, I will highlight the steps we took to optimize these methods for GPU accelerated systems and report performance characteristics of our highly tuned implementations.
