Computational physics has experienced a fast growth in the last few years, also thanks to the advent of new technologies, such as that of Graphics Processing Units (GPUs). GPUs are currently used for a plethora of scientific applications. In particular, in computational astrophysics, GPUs can speed up the solution to many problems like data processing and the study dynamical evolution of...

GPUs for medical imaging purposes
The Common Unified Device Architecture (CUDA) is a NVIDIA software development platform that allows us to implement general-purpose applications on graphics processing unit (GPU). There are a lot of application areas that benefit of the GPU computing. Fast 3D cone-beam reconstruction is required by many application fields like medical CT imaging or industrial non-destructive testing. For that...

In this contribution we report one of the main goals of the GAP project, which aims to investigate the deployment of Graphic Processing Units (GPU) in different context of realtime scientific applications. In particular we focused on the application of GPUs in reconstruction of diffusion weighted nuclear magnetic resonance (DW-NMR) images by using non-Gaussian diffusion models. This...
