  1. 1. Assessing the impact of floating-point precision in plasma simulations : A study of precision reduction and precisionrefinement in iPIC3D

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS); KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Svante Sörberg; Simon Tran Florén; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This thesis explores how the precision of floating-point numbers affects the high-performance, implicit particle-in-cell plasma simulation software iPIC3D. We investigate whether a version of iPIC3D, modified to use floatingpoint numbers in lower precision than the current 64 bit double-precision, could yield accurate simulations in comparison with the current version.

    Abstract : Planet Earth is moving rapidly towards a point of no return in the climate crisis currently experienced, and while the debate is still raging on wether it is naturally occurring or not the temperature steadily increases - causing melting icecaps, expanding seas and rising oceans. It is the author's view however, that wether the change is man-made or not is irrelevant; as there is no other planet to conduct an experiment on. READ MORE

  5. 5. Bit-Vector Approximations of Floating-Point Arithmetic

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för informationsteknologi

    Author : Joel Havermark; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The use of floating-point numbers in safety-critical applications shows a need to efficiently and automatically reason about them. One approach is to use Satisfiability modulo theories (SMT). The naive approach to using SMT does not scale well. Previous work suggests approximations as a scalable solution. READ MORE
