Michal Merta – BEM library, Xeon Phi acceleration
Researcher at IT4Innovations National Supercomputing Center. He is mainly interested in the parallel boundary element method (BEM). He is a co-founder of the library BEM4I that aims at parallel solution of problems from linear elasticity to sound scattering using BEM. Its acceleration using Intel® Xeon Phi™ is currently being implemented.Michal Merta was awarded Joseph Fourier Prize 2015 by Bull s.r.o. and Babuska Prize 2011 by Czech Society for Mechanics for his research.
