 Publisher's Summary
 This is a stepbystep guide to parallelizing cem codes. The future of computational electromagnetics is changing drastically as the new generation of computer chips evolves from singlecore to multicore. The burden now falls on software programmers to revamp existing codes and add new functionality to enable computational codes to run efficiently on this new generation of multicore CPUs. In this book, you'll learn everything you need to know to deal with multicore advances in chip design by employing highly efficient parallel electromagnetic code. Focusing only on the Method of Moments (MoM), the book covers: InCore and OutofCore LU Factorization for Solving a Matrix Equation; A Parallel MoM Code Using RWG Basis Functions and ScaLAPACKBased InCore and OutofCore Solvers; A Parallel MoM Code Using HigherOrder Basis Functions and ScaLAPACKBased InCore and OutofCore Solvers; Turning the Performance of a Parallel Integral Equation Solver; Refinement of the Solution Using the Conjugate Gradient Method; A Parallel MoM Code Using HigherOrder Basis Functions and PlapackBased InCore and OutofCore Solvers; and, Applications of the Parallel Frequency Domain Integral Equation Solver. Appendices are provided with detailed information on the various computer platforms used for computation; a demo shows you how to compile ScaLAPACK and PLAPACK on the Windows[registered] operating system; and a demo parallel source code is available to solve the 2D electromagnetic scattering problems. "Parallel Solution of Integral EquationBased EM Problems in the Frequency Domain" is indispensable reading for computational code designers, computational electromagnetics researchers, graduate students, and anyone working with CEM software.
