Importance-Driven Exploration of Molecular Dynamics Simulations (DAAV)
The aim of this thesis is a novel real-time visualization approach for exploring molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. Through the constantly improving hardware, MD simulations are more easily available. Additionally, they get more detailed and consist out of thousand or even million individual frames. Using current software tools, the exploration of such long simulations, as animated 3D visualizations, takes too much time and it is therefore very likely that the user will miss important events. With our approach, the user is guided to the most relevant temporal and spatial events and it is therefore no longer necessary to explore the simulation in a linear fashion.
My master thesis topic is about multi-GPU rendering with Vulkan API. Vulkan provide low level explicit access to GPUs, which allows us to send different tasks to different GPUs. So it is possible to implement multi-GPU rendering. I am working on sort-first and sort-last implementations.
