EDI CON Online

Title: The Next Generation of EM Analysis, Beowulf, from Sonnet

Date: October 6, 2020

Time: 8:30am PT / 11:30am ET

Sponsored by: Sonnet Software

Presented by: Dr. Brian Ratio, VP Operations

Since 2014, Sonnet has been hard at work on a commercial implementation of the Unified-FFT algorithm. The result is an upcoming product named Beowulf, after the Old English Poem. Like the titular character of the poem, the Beowulf solver has a knack for solving monstrously large problems. Scaling as O(N log N), Beowulf uses a complex and unique FFT solution to calculate full-numerical precision solutions for large problems, all with a fraction of the time and memory requirements of conventional solvers. Sonnet is proud to perform a live demonstration with a pre-release version of the solver.
