Seminars on programming GPU's for numerical analysis, Fri Oct 3
On Friday October 3, the QCD Department is hosting several talks on the use of NVidia Tesla Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) for umerical programming. All of the talks will be in WH7-XO ("Racetrack").
11:00-12:00 Drew Vohs of James River Technical will discuss NVidia-based hardware
1:30-2:30 Brent Oster of NVidia will give an introduction to NVidia GPU hardware and the CUDA programming environment, and will discuss his work on various numerical codes using CUDA (particle-based Monte Carlo transport, molecular dynamics, and finite difference on regular grids)
2:30-3:30 (time approximate) Rich Brower of Boston University will discuss the implementation and performance of Wilson-Dirac perators and conjugate gradient inverters for Lattice QCD on Tesla 8 GPUs.
Brent Oster will be available throughout the day for informal discussions. Please contact Don Holmgren (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Jim Simone (email@example.com) if you would like to meet with Brent.
