LAMA 2.0 accelerates more than just numerical applications

21.06.2016

Fraunhofer SCAI publishes with LAMA 2.0 the next evolution of its high performance computing framework. It has grown from a linear algebra library to a multi-purpose programming framework.

By offering DSL-like C++-Syntax LAMA encourages writing of hardware-independent code. The framework allows the management of data on heterogeneous and distributed system architectures. These can range from embedded “System on a Chip” (aka SoC) devices to highly-parallel Supercomputers.

Consequently, LAMA offers full cluster support. Kernel management is provided with ready-to-use modules encapsulating interfaces to Intel® MKL and Nvidia® cuBLAS/cuSPARSE (targeting all multicore CPUs, Nvidia® GPUs, and Intel® Xeon® Phi™). For the purpose of extending LAMA, the framework supports the integration of custom modules.

Hence, it greatly facilitates the development of fast and scalable software for nearly every system on every scale. LAMA accelerates the time-to-market for new product developments significantly, reduces the time spent in maintaining existing code, and offers up-to-date hardware compatibility for even the latest architectures.

Typically, LAMA targets applications with needs in numerical mathematics (such as CFD and FEM simulation). Furthermore, LAMA 2.0 integrates methodology in the areas of optimization (e.g. for seismic imaging), computer vision, and deep learning.

It is available with an industry-friendly dual licensing model (AGPL for open source or individual agreements for other interests).

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...

Im Focus: Scientists improve forecast of increasing hazard on Ecuadorian volcano

Researchers from the University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, the Italian Space Agency (ASI), and the Instituto Geofisico--Escuela Politecnica Nacional (IGEPN) of Ecuador, showed an increasing volcanic danger on Cotopaxi in Ecuador using a powerful technique known as Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR).

The Andes region in which Cotopaxi volcano is located is known to contain some of the world's most serious volcanic hazard. A mid- to large-size eruption has...
