Abstract

The Artemis subproject, in the framework of the UE Capri project, deals with porting on parallel architectures of a Method of Moment (MoM) code for electromagnetic design and hardening of telecommunication centres against the effects of lightning strokes. After a preliminary stage of the work during which QR and LU algorithms for large complex matrix inversion were implemented both on Alenia's Quadrics (SIMD) and Cray T3D (MIMD) platforms, in order to choose the best suitable machine for such a kind of problem, the code has been ported on the last one. In this paper the parallel code validation and the performance improvement analysis with respect to the sequential one will be reported and discussed.
