Book Description :

Beyond simulation and algorithm development, many developers increasingly use MATLAB even for product deployment in computationally heavy fields. This often demands that MATLAB codes run faster by leveraging the distributed parallelism of Graphics Processing Units (GPUs). While MATLAB successfully provides high-level functions as a simulation tool for rapid prototyping, the underlying details and knowledge needed for utilizing GPUs make MATLAB users hesitate to step into it. Accelerating MATLAB with GPUs offers a primer on bridging this gap. Starting with the basics, setting up MATLAB for CUDA (in Windows, Linux and Mac OS X) and profiling, it then guides users through advanced topics such as CUDA libraries. The authors share their experience developing algorithms using MATLAB, C++ and GPUs for huge datasets, modifying MATLAB codes to better utilize the computational power of GPUs, and integrating them into commercial software products. Throughout the book, they demonstrate many example codes that can be used as templates of C-MEX and CUDA codes for readers’ projects. Download example codes from the publisher's website: http://booksite.elsevier.com/9780124080805/ Shows how to accelerate MATLAB codes through the GPU for parallel processing, with minimal hardware knowledge Explains the related background on hardware, architecture and programming for ease of use Provides simple worked examples of MATLAB and CUDA C codes as well as templates that can be reused in real-world projects

Book Description :

This thesis, entitled €High Performance Computing for solving large sparse systems. Optical Diffraction Tomography as a case of study€ investigates the computational issues related to the resolution of linear systems of equations which come from the discretization of physical models described by means of Partial Differential Equations (PDEs). These physical models are conceived for the description of the space-temporary behavior of some physical phenomena f(x, y, z, t) in terms of their variations (partial derivative) with respect to the dependent variables of the phenomena. There is a wide variety of discretization methods for PDEs. Two of the most well-known methods are the Finite Difference Method (FDM) and the Finite Element Method (FEM). Both methods result in an algebraic description of the model that can be translated into the approach of a linear system of equations of type (Ax = b), where A is a sparse matrix (a high percentage of zero elements) whose size depends on the required accuracy of the modeled phenomena. This thesis begins with the algebraic description of the model associated with the physical phenomena, and the work herein has been focused on the design of techniques and computational models that allow the resolution of these linear systems of equations. The main interest of this study is specially focused on models which require a high level of discretization and usually generate sparse matrices, A, which have a highly sparse structure and large size. Literature characterizes these types of problems by their high demanding computational requirements (because of their fine degree of discretization) and the sparsity of the matrices involved, suggesting that these kinds of problems can only be solved using High Performance Computing techniques and architectures. One of the main goals of this thesis is the research of the possible alternatives which allow the implementation of routines to solve large and sparse linear systems of equations using High Performance Computing (HPC). The use of massively parallel platforms (GPUs) allows the acceleration of these routines, because they have several advantages for vectorial computation schemes. On the other hand, the use of distributed memory platforms allows the resolution of problems defined by matrices of enormous size. Finally, the combination of both techniques, distributed computation and multi-GPUs, will allow faster resolution of interesting problems in which large and sparse matrices are involved. In this line, one of the goals of this thesis is to supply the scientific community with implementations based on multi-GPU clusters to solve sparse linear systems of equations, which are the key in many scientific computations. The second part of this thesis is focused on a real physical problem of Optical Diffractional Tomography (ODT) based on holographic information. ODT is a non-damaging technique which allows the extraction of the shapes of objects with high accuracy. Therefore, this technique is very suitable to the in vivo study of real specimens, microorganisms, etc., and it also makes the investigation of their dynamics possible. A preliminary physical model based on a bidimensional reconstruction of the seeding particle distribution in fluids was proposed by J. Lobera and J.M. Coupland. However, its high computational cost (in both memory requirements and runtime) made compulsory the use of HPC techniques to extend the implementation to a three dimensional model. In the second part of this thesis, the implementation and validation of this physical model for the case of three dimensional reconstructions is carried out. In such implementation, the resolution of large and sparse linear systems of equations is required. Thus, some of the algebraic routines developed in the first part of the thesis have been used to implement computational strategies capable of solving the problem of 3D reconstruction based on ODT.

Book Description :

The use of Population Balance Models (PBM) for simulating dynamics of particulate systems are inevitably limited at some point by the demands they place on computational resources. PBMs are widely used to describe the time evolutions and distributions of many industrial particulate processes, and its efficient and quick simulation would certainly be beneficial for process design, control and optimization. This thesis is an elucidation of how MATLAB's Parallel Computing Toolbox (PCT), a third-party toolbox called JACKET, and the MATLAB Distributed Computing Server (MDCS) may be combined with algorithmic modification of the PBM to speed up these computations on a CPU (Central Processing Unit), GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) and a computer cluster respectively. Parallel algorithms were developed for three dimensional and four dimensional population balance models incorporating hardware class-specific parallel constructs such as SPMD and gfor. Results indicate significant reduction in computational time without compromising numerical accuracy for all cases except for the GPU. The GPU seemed promising for larger problems despite its limitations of lower clock speeds and on-board memory compared to the CPU. Evaluations of the speedup and scalability further affirm the algorithms' performance.
