Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


In this chapter, we investigate the use of GPUs to speed up the matrix–vector product within an iterative integral equation (IE) solver. Our implementation is based on CUDA. Numerical experiments suggest that GPU computing can accelerate the performance of the solver by a factor of 70 for the single-precision arithmetic and by a factor of 30 for the double precision. The material presented here can be of interest for iterative finite difference acoustic and electromagnetic solvers based on layered earth Green’s function preconditioners.
