Supernovae Observational Cosmology using GPU High Performance Computing

Artigo:

We performed computing calculations of SNe Ia (type Ia supernova) in observational cosmology using CPU (Central Processing Unit) and GPU/CUDA (Graphics Processing Unit/Compute Unified Device Architecture) in 7 different programming methods : CUDA called from C/C++, Python with CUDA (Py-CUDA), Wolfram Mathematica with CUDA, C/C++, pure Python, Python with NumPy and Wolfram Mathematica calculated in CPU. With CUDA, we obtained speedup of approximately 3 to 7 hundred times with respect to CPU when performing calculations of the SNe Ia distance modulus (m0). So we confirmed that CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture) is an excellent choice for GPU High Performance Computing (HPC) architecture applied to observational cosmology calculations.
