Abstract

This chapter shows how a directive-based model can make it possible for application scientists to “keep” their codes, accelerate them with reduced programming effort, and achieve performance equal to or better than that obtained using hand-written code and low-level programming interfaces. Specifically, this chapter covers programmers’ experiences porting two commonly used algorithms—Feldkamp and stencil—on single ...
