Algorithms and Abstractions for Assembly in PDE Codes: Workshop Report,
Sandia Technical Report, SAND2015-1379, February, 2015.
The emergence of high-concurrency architectures offering unprecedented performance has brought many high-performance partial differential equation (PDE) discretization codes to the precipice of a major refactor. To help address this challenge a workshop titled "Algorithms and Abstractions for Assembly in PDE Codes" was held in the Computer Science Research Institute at Sandia National Laboratories on May 12th-14th, 2014.
This document summarizes the goals of the workshop and the results of the presentations and subsequent discussions.
