Abstract:
Despite rapid development in supercomputer performance over the last three decades, solving the N-body problem with direct summation and O(N^2) complexity is and will be unfeasible for real-life applications.
Since hardware acceleration and/or parallelism can postpone but never remove the bottleneck implied by such an algorithmic complexity, much attention has been devoted to rapid summation techniques such as the Barnes-Hut tree code. In this workshop, we present and discuss new ideas aiming at the full exploitation of modern and upcoming high performance architectures.
