A Portable Distributed Implementation of the Parallel Multipole
William T. Rankin and John A. Board, Jr.
Several variants of parallel multipole-based algorithms have been
to further research in fields such as computational chemistry and
We present a distributed parallel implementation of a multipole-based
algorithm that is portable to a wide variety of applications and
Performance data are presented for loosely coupled networks of
workstations as well as for more tightly coupled distributed
multiprocessors, demonstrating the portability and scalability of the
application to large number of processors.
