LibGeoDecomp (Library for Geometric Decomposition codes) is an auto-parallelizing library for stencil codes. Developed by our STE||AR Group collaborators at Friedrich-Alexander University in Nuremberg, it is specifically targeted for computational science applications in the context of heterogeneous systems and supercomputers. The library eases development of such tightly coupled codes by essentially taking over the parallel programming: it handles both, the parallelization itself and parameter tuning. This enables scientists to focus on their simulation code, rather than the technical details of the parallel computer.

LibGeoDecomp can use either HPX or MPI as the parallelization back-end.  This feature allows our group to directly compare how HPX performs with respect to MPI.  To learn more about the library please visit the website here.
