Solving the n-body Problem Using HPX

The n-body problem, i.e. the prediction of the motion of a group of objects that interact with each other under the influence of a force, is a method that continues to present a computational challenge to scientist in a broad range of application areas, like astrophysics or computational biology. Existing codes are usually scaling-challenged causing overly long runtimes for real-world problem sizes. We hope to overcome some of the challenges that face computing an n-body problem by using a message driven, inherently asynchronous approach based on the HPX (High-Performance ParalleX) library.  Continue reading
