SDSC Connects the Dots for Professionals with Graphing Analytics

The recent explosion of interest in analyzing and mining “Big Data” across almost all sectors of science and industry has data scientists looking for new ways to model data so as to accurately represent it and facilitate the gleaning of insights and knowledge from the data. Graph representations, while certainly not a new concept, are noteworthy because of the timely and relevant situations and phenomena that can be modeled using graph-like data structures.  What is new and innovative is the development of tools and techniques to operate on graphs at the Big Data scale.  “...

Your challenge is to parallelize part of an existing serial/OpenMP code simulating a forest fire to make use of the CUDA platform for running in parallel on a GPGPU.


You are given as starter code the "CUDA Fire starter zip file" below. This code is for the simulation of a forest fire - the trees are arranged in a 2D grid; one random tree is initially lit on fire.

The code already makes use of OpenMP, but this is a red herring. Your challenge is to utilize CUDA to parallelize the advanceBurningTrees function so it can be run on a...
