High speed eigenvalue solver on the Cell cluster system for controlling nuclear fusion plasma

Kushida, Noriyuki; Takemiya, Hiroshi; Tokuda, Shinji*

In this study, we developed a high speed eigenvalue solver that is the necessity of plasma stability analysis system for International Thermo-nuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) on Cell cluster system. According to our estimation, the most time consuming part of analysis system is eigensolver. However, current supercomputer is not applicable for such instantaneous calculation, because the overhead of network communication becomes dominant. Therefore, we employ Cell cluster system, whose processor has higher performance than current supercomputer, because we can obtain sufficient processing power with small number of processors. Furthermore, we developed novel eigenvalue solver with the consideration of hierarchical architecture of Cell cluster Finally, we succeeded to solve the block tridiagonal Hermitian matrix, which had 1024 diagonal blocks and the size of each block was 128 $$times$$ 128 within a second.
