"Challenges in Combinatorial Scientific Computing"


Computation on large combinatorial structures -- graphs, strings, partial orders, etc. -- has become fundamental in many areas of data analysis and scientific modeling. The field of high-performance combinatorial computing, however, is in its infancy. By way of contrast, in numerical supercomputing we possess standard algorithmic primitives, high-performance software libraries, powerful rapid-prototyping tools, and a deep understanding of effective mappings of problems to high-performance computer architectures.

This talk will describe a number of challenges for the field of combinatorial scientific computing, in algorithms, tools, architectures, and mathematics. I will draw examples from various applications, and I will highlight our group's work on algebraic primitives for high-performance computation on large graphs and networks.



You are cordially invited to attend a reception in the lounge next to Klaus 1324 before the seminar to chat informally with faculty and students. PIZZA will be provided.
