Abstract

Thanks to the new parallel algorithm, GPUs can now be used to simulate geological folds interactively in 3D! Mohammed Sourouri of University of Oslo, Norway completed innovative work on Parallel Front Propagation Method. This project is important in understanding the inner environment of the Earth or in oil and gas exploration. Had it not been for GPUs, interactive simulations would not be possible. His thesis has been submitted to the Department of Informatics at the University of Oslo.
