PETSc, is a suite of data structures and routines for the scalable parallel solution of nonlinear equations, often arising from partial differential equations or boundary integral equations. PETSc has been used for years in the oil and gas industry, including development contributed back from WesternGeco and Shell. It supports MPI,
shared memory pthreads, and GPUs, as well as hybrid MPI-shared memory pthreads or MPI-GPU parallelism. In this brief tutorial, we will highlight basic sparse parallel linear algebra, linear and nonlinear algebraic solvers, structured and unstructured meshes, and timestepping. We will show how optimal, hierarchical, multilevel solvers for complex, multiphysics problems can be dynamically assembled using the PETSc object system.
