Chare-kernel base language: Preliminary performance results

L. V. Kale, Wei Shu

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The base language for the chare-kernel, which supports parallel execution of computations with irregular structures, is presented. Chare-kernel programs can be executed on different shared-memory and message-passing machines without change. A few simple primitives which are at the core of the language are described, and programs written using these primitives are demonstrated. The performance of these programs on two parallel machines is also given.
