Multigrid Solution of Poisson's Equation using GPU's

The use of graphical processing units (GPU's) for high performance computing has generated significant interest over the past 5 years. This is because GPU's are multicore processors that have been specifically designed for computational speed rather than general purpose processors seen in typical desktop or laptop computers. This talk will provide an overview of the current architecture of modern GPU's in addition to an example of a multigrid algorithm for the solution of the Poisson equation.
