Welcome to the HAMM Project Web Site 

This research project aims at the development, analysis and software implementation of mathematical models for multiscale applications on hybrid architectures. Large scale multiscale applications are indeed within reach with the emerging computing infrastructures, but they require accurate and robust multiscale numerical methods that take into account these new architectures. This is very challenging as current software were not designed for these methods and architectures. As a matter of fact, scientists and engineers need to manage 
  1. the complexity of the underlying multiscale models, usually expressed in terms of a partial differential equation (PDE) system completed with algebraic closure laws,
  2. the complexity of numerical methods used to solve the PDE systems, and finally
  3. the complexity of the low level computer science services required to have efficient software on modern hybrid hardware (e.g. multicore CPU/GPU). 
Robust and effective multiscale methods as well as advanced programming techniques need to be combined to fully benefit from massively parallel architectures (implementation of parallelism, memory handling, design of connections). Moreover, the above methodologies and technologies become more and more sophisticated and too complex to be handled only by physicists.

Project Objectives

The HAMM project objectives are to provide
  • a selection of challenging large scale multiscale applications,
  • the development of multiscale numerical methods,
  • their implementation on hybrid architectures within an innovative programming and runtime environment,
  • the evaluation of the computational efficiency (including load balancing and benchmarking), the validation and verification of the resulting codes.

Project Funding

This project is funded by the french national research agency (ANR). The ANR funds in particular
  • 3 Phd thesis, two fully and one jointly with the FNRAE (project RB4FASTSIM)
  • a two year postdoctorate position
  • several workshops
  • a participation to the hybrid computer equip@meso Grenoble
