Abstract

A number of features of today’s high-performance computers make it challenging to exploit these machines fully for computational science. These include increasing core counts but stagnant clock frequencies; the high cost of data movement; use of accelerators (GPUs, FPGAs, coprocessors), making architectures increasingly heterogeneous; and multipleprecisions of floating-point arithmetic, including half precision. Moreover, as well as maximizing speed and accuracy, minimizing energy consumptionis an important criterion. New generations of algorithms are needed to tackle these challenges. We discuss some approaches that we can take to develop numerical algorithms for high-performance computational science, with a view to exploiting the next generation of supercomputers.
