A multiwavelet approach to the direct solution of the Poisson equation: implementation and optimization
AuthorJensen, Stig Rune
This work is presenting a fully numerical approach for the direct solution of the Poisson equation for the electrostatic potential given by an arbitrary charge density. Efficient solution of this equation is important in many fields of science, where the current work is dealing with nuclear and electronic potential calculations, used in the field of computational chemistry. The equation is solved using the mathematical framework of multiwavelets, which is a theory that enables us to represent functions and operators with rigorous error control. The multiwavelet basis is well suited to treat the multiple length scales present in the calculation of electronic structure. A prototype implementation of the solution of the Poisson equation using the multiwavelet formalism has previously been obtained by the computational chemistry group at the University of Tromso¸, and the current work is dealing with optimization of the existing code and with the development of the code into new areas of applicability, specifically to the calculation of electronic structure using the framework of density functional theory.

Baadshaug, Ole (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2018-06-29)Moving icebergs represent a major problem for shipping, as well as for oil and gas installations in ice infested waters. To be able to take actions against hazardous icebergs, it is necessary to develop models for prediction of iceberg drift trajectories. Many models have been developed in order to do so, using different approaches. These approaches can be divided into two main categories, dynamic ...
Schulz, Jörn (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2013-12-18)The use of statistical shape analysis in medical settings has increased during the last decades. This thesis presents contributions to three major topics of statistical shape analysis with application to medical problems. These topics are: the modeling of the shape by a geometrical model, the study of rotational shape deformations and the comparison of shapes between populations. Paper I presents ...
Johansen, Thomas A. Haugland (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2016-12-08)The key objectives in this thesis are; the study of GPU-accelerated eigenvalue decomposition in an effort to uncover both benefits and pitfalls, and then to investigate and facilitate a future GPU implementation of the symmetric QR algorithm with permutations. With the current trend of having ever larger datasets both in terms of features and observations, we propose that GPU computation can help ...
