Implementation of Airy function using Graphics Processing Unit (GPU)
Department of Electronics Engineering, Ramrao Adik Institute of Technology, Nerul, Navi Mumbai
Special mathematical functions are an integral part of Fractional Calculus, one of them is the Airy function. But it’s a gruelling task for the processor as well as system that is constructed around the function when it comes to evaluating the special mathematical functions on an ordinary Central Processing Unit (CPU). The Parallel processing capabilities of a Graphics processing Unit (GPU) hence is used. In this paper GPU is used to get a speedup in time required, with respect to CPU time for evaluating the Airy function on its real domain. The objective of this paper is to provide a platform for computing the special functions which will accelerate the time required for obtaining the result and thus comparing the performance of numerical solution of Airy function using CPU and GPU.
Key words: GPU / CPU / Airy function / Speedup
