CISM: Center for Integrated Space Weather Modelling

Coupling Tools

  • Overture (Quinlan at LLNL and Sussman)
    • Handles overlapping grids (moving and static)
    • Does adaptive mesh refinement (AMR++)
    • Automatic domain decomposition for parallel computation
    • Powerful Fortran90-like syntax for arithmetic operations, as well as differential operators

  • Meta-Chaos (Sussman)
    • Provides pipe for communication between parallel programs
    • Works on structured and unstructured grids (including Overture codes)
    • Inter-program communication within a parallel machine, or across a local or wide-area network
    • Minimal changes to an existing parallel program, and doesn't change communication method within the program
