Parallel Solution of Ordinary Differential Equations
May 1978 (vol. 27 no. 5)
pp. 413-420
M.A. Franklin, Department of Electrical Engineering, Washington University
This paper presents a performance comparison of three parallel algorithms for the solution of sets of coupled first-order differential equations. A general format for comparison of the algorithms is given, and performance equations for the two processor cases are developed. The equations take into account both the computational and intercommunications requirements of the processors. These equations are applied to a benchmark of six problems and a simple, single bus multiprocessor architecture. The more than two processor case is considered for one of the parallel algorithms.
