This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2018) Abstract We present HONEI, an open-source collection of libraries offering a hardware oriented approach to numerical calculations. HONEI abstracts the hardware, and applications written on top of HONEI can be executed on a wide range of computer architectures such as CPUs, GPUs and the Cell processor. We demonstrate the flexibility and performance of our approach with two test applications, a Finite Element multigrid solver for the Poisson problem and a robust and fast simulation of shallow water wave... Title of program: HONEI Catalogue Id: AEDW_v1_0 Nature of problem Computational science in general and numerical simulation in particular have reached a turning point. The revolution developers are facing is not primarily driven by a change in (problem-specific) methodology, but rather by the fundamental paradigm shift of the underlying hardware towards heterogeneity and parallelism. This is particularly relevant for data-intensive problems stemming from discretisations with local support, such as finite differences, volumes and elements.
