Abstract

Mathematicians and computational scientists are often limited in their ability to model complex phenomena by the time it takes to run simulations. This thesis will inform interested researchers on how the development of highly parallel computer graphics hardware and the compiler frameworks to exploit it are expanding the range of algorithms that can be explored on affordable commodity hardware. We will discuss the complexities that have prevented researchers from exploiting advanced hardware as well as the obstacles that remain for the non-computer scientist.
