Student Mathematics, Scientific Computing or similar: Latency hiding in a massively parallel block Jacobi-Davidson code

Your mission:

At DLR, we develop numerical linear algebra software for massively parallel computers. This software is applied to quantum physics applications to model graphene-based structures, topological insulators, and quantum Hall effect devices in the context of the German Research Foundation project ESSEX (Equipping Sparse Solvers for Exascale).

You are part of the ESSEX development team. Your work builds on an existing master project which resulted in an massively parallel block Jacobi-Davidson code for solving sparse eigenproblems. Your tasks involve re-analyzing the algorithm in the light of overlapping communication and computation, implementing a thus improved version of the code and assessing  its parallel efficiency on a state-of-the-art supercomputer.
