Computational Science Series
“… the very rst in-depth
introduction to the interac-
tion of two highly impor-
tant and relevant topics
in computational science:
high performance comput-
ing and scientic visualiza-
tion. … It will provide a sol-
id foundation for anyone
who considers using the
most recent tools for visu-
alization in order to under-
stand complex simulation
data or to understand the
ever increasing amount of
experimental data. I highly
recommend this timely book for scientists and engineers.”
—From the Foreword by Horst Simon, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and
University of California, Berkeley
Unifying a large and diverse body of computer science research, development,
and practical applications, High Performance Visualization: Enabling Extreme-
Scale Scientific Insight focuses on the subset of scientic visualization concerned
with algorithm design, implementation, and optimization for use on today’s largest
computational platforms. It describes the state of the art at the intersection of
scientic visualization, large data, and high performance computing trends, giving
readers the foundation to apply the concepts and carry out future research in this
area.
The book collects some of the most seminal work in the eld, including algorithms
and implementations running at the highest levels of concurrency and used by sci-
entic researchers worldwide. After introducing the fundamental con-
cepts of parallel visualization, the book explores approaches
to accelerate visualization and analysis operations on
high performance computing platforms. Looking
to the future, it also presents alternative plat-
forms and architectures as well as contem-
porary, high performance visualization
implementations.
