Numerical Studies of the Klein-Gordon Equation in a Periodic Setting

SESSION: Research Poster Reception

EVENT TYPE: Posters and Electronic Posters

TIME: 5:15PM - 7:00PM

SESSION CHAIR: Torsten Hoefler

AUTHOR(S):Albert Liu, Brian Leu, Parth Sheth

ROOM:East Entrance

ABSTRACT:
In contemporary physics research, there is much interest in modeling quantum interactions. The Klein-Gordon equation is a wave equation useful for such purposes. We investigate the equation by simulating different solutions of the equation using various initial conditions, with solutions that tend to zero at infinity being of special interest. The primary site used to perform these simulations is Trestles at SDSC, and we also studied the performance increase when running jobs on supercomputing resources. This involved performing a scaling study involving the relationship between core/node number and performance increase. In addition to investigating the Klein-Gordon equation, another important goal of our project was to provide an undergraduate perspective on supercomputing. When considering undergraduate involvement in the field of high performance computing, the level of student engagement is very disappointing. From our experience with supercomputing resources, we look to provide new ways in enhancing student outreach and engagement.
