A Software Framework for Finite Difference Simulation
This paper describes a software framework for solving time dependent PDEs in simple domains using finite difference (FD) methods. The framework is designed for parallel computations on distributed and shared memory computers, thus allowing for efficient solution of large-scale problems. The framework provides automated data exchange between processors based on stencil information. This automated data exchange allows a user to add FD schemes without knowledge about underlying parallel infrastructure. The framework includes acoustic solver based on staggered second-order in time and various orders in space FD schemes with perfectly matched layer and/or free surface boundary conditions.
