Abstract

Space filling Curves (SFCs) are increasingly used for combinatorial scientific computing and in particular for designing fast domain decomposition (partitioning) methods. In the context of parallel particle simulations for solving the system of Maxwell/Vlasov equations with a coupled FE/PIC (Finite Element/Particle-In-Cell) unstructured mesh based solver, one has to deal with a two-constraint partitioning problem. Moreover, this problem has to be solved several times during the simulation. Therefore, a fast and scalable partitioning problem is required. For this purpose, we propose here a new SFC based method which is well adapted to multi-constraint partitioning problems. This method is compared to graph based partitioning methods from the widely used MeTiS tool. Experimental results show that the proposed SFC based method is at least 100 times faster than MeTiS to the disadvantage of edge-cuts that are between 2 to 4 times worse than those achieved by the MeTiS methods.
