SIAM CSE21 MINISYMPOSIUM ON “Mixed Precision Algorithms for High Performance Scientific Computing”

The biannual SIAM Conference on Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) was conducted virtually between March 1 to 5, 2021. Theo Mary and I organised a two-part minisymposium on recent algorithmic and software advances of mixed precision methods in scientific computing. Below are the links to the slides of the talk.

Minisymposium description: The increasing support of lower precision arithmetics in hardware, such as fp16 and bfloat16, provides new opportunities for high performance scientific computing. However, even though low precision arithmetics can provide significant speed, communication, and energy benefits, their use in scientific computing poses the challenge of preserving the accuracy and stability of the computation. To address this issue, a variety of mixed precision algorithms that combine low and high precisions have emerged.
