Application of using MPI for distributed numerical computation; solving Poisson's equation.
This post is about high performance numerical computing. It explains the well known Poisson's equation, why it is a tough problem to solve fast when it gets big and then shows one way to implement a solver that will scale to huge problem sizes

FDM heat equation of isolated rod with dynamic end temparatures
To test my understanding of the FDM method I made a simple implementation of the CrankNickelson method applied on the heat equation. The physical intepretation is this: You have a perfectly insulated rod of length \(l\). At time \(t_0\) you know the temperature distribution in the ro

New data source for OpenAviationMap, OpenAir, and with it a new parser!
I've been working on a parser for the OpenAir format this weekend. As usual I like to work in Haskell. The Parsec library makes sense when creating parsers
