AlphaNumerics Zero, Helmholtz AI Project
Funded by the Helmholtz Association’s Initiative and Networking Fund (INF)
August 2020 until January 2023

The goal of AlphaNumerics Zero is to rethink the design of numerical methods on high-performance computers. The project uses reinforcement learning techniques so that the computer independently learns the optimal numerical solution method for a given simulation problem.

FMhub: A Fast Multipole Solver Hub for the Scientific Community
Funded by the German Research Foundation, DFG ( Project number 443189148)
September 2021 to August 2024

The new DFG-funded FMhub project aims to provide an open-source fast multipole method (FMM) for the scientific community as a flexible C++ library called FMSolvr to compute long-range interactions. The code will be made available together with community-building tools such as version control, a bug tracker, continuous integration, and deployment tools as well as comprehensive documentation. Together with Prof. Matthias Werner and his team from Chemnitz University of Technology, researchers at JSC will employ software engineering techniques to work towards these goals. The project started in September 2021 and will run for three years.

PinTSimE: Project on Parallel Simulation of Multi-Modal Energy Systems
Funded by the German Research Foundation, DFG ( Project number 450829162)
February 2021 until August 2025

The goal of PinTSimE is to define methodologies for the use of parallel-in-space-and-time techniques for the simulation of multi-modal energy systems in order to achieve faster than real-time performance. The two parallelization techniques combined will ensure an effective use of simulations for the design, analysis, control, and optimization of multi-modal power grids.

TIME-X: Time parallelization for eXascale computing
Funded by the European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU, grant agreement No 955701)
April 2021 to March 2024

TIME-X will take the next leap in the development and deployment of parallel-in-time integration methods for massively parallel HPC simulation, enabling their efficient usage for real-life applications. TIME-X unites all relevant actors at the European level for the first time in a joint strategic research effort.

HiRSE_PS: Preparatory Study for the Helmholtz Platform for Research Software Engineering
January 2022 to December 2023

Research Software Engineering (RSE) is forming as a new subject of investigation in Europe, Germany, and the Helmholtz Association. In this context, the concept behind the Helmholtz Platform for Research Software Engineering (HiRSE) sees the establishment of central activities in RSE and the targeted, sustainable funding of strategically important software by Community Software Infrastructure (CSI) groups as mutually supportive aspects of a single entity.

StroemungsRaum
Funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF, grant No 16ME0708)
OCTOBER 2022 to September 2025

Future Exascale computing architectures will feature a high number of heterogeneous hardware components that are comprised of special-purpose processsors or accelerators. The corresponding realization of Computational Fluid Dyanamics (CFD) application software as a central core component of nowaday's CFD simulations in industrial context requries high-scaling ...
