PyCon 2011: SOLVCON: A New Python-Based Software Framework for Massively Parallelized Numerical Simulations

Yung-Yu Chen SOLVCON is the first Python-based software framework for high-resolution simulations of multi-physics conservation laws. More than ninety percents of the codes are done in Python. Performance hot-spots are optimized by C and glued by ctypes library. SOLVCON is high-performance in nature and has been able to utilize 512 4-core nodes at Ohio Supercomputer Center.
