Fujitsu Partners with ANU on Supercomputing Software

Fujitsu has teamed up with Australian National University (ANU) to work on software for modelling tsunamis and fusion reactors on petascale machines.

The project,  titled ‘Robust numerical solution of partial differential equations on petascale computer systems with applications to tsunami modelling and plasma physics’, aimed to develop mathematical techniques for parallel processing on next-generation high performance computers (HPCs).

"Current algorithms do not have the required scalability nor robustness required by the next generation of supercomputers," ANU Professor Markus Hegland explained.

"New algorithms are required to deal with the challenges posed of the large numbers [up to millions] of parallel computational threads, their synchronisation and communication between the threads."
