AMR on the CM-2

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We describe the development of a structured adaptive mesh algorithm (AMR) for the CM-2. We develop a data layout scheme that preserves locality even for communication between fine and coarse grids. On 8K of a 32K machine we achieve performance slightly less than one CPU of the Cray Y-MP. We apply our algorithm to an inviscid compressible flow problem.
