A lattice-based approach for GPU programming (Postdoc 2020-2021)

I am a postdoc researcher at the University of Luxembourg in the team PCOG of the SnT laboratory. In collaboration with Frédéric Pinel, we design a programming language based on lattices as data structures and extensive functions as programs. We rely on the strong theoretical fondation of lattice theory to program over massively parallel architecture, and in particular GPU. The key insight is that a lattice structure naturally supports concurrent computations without the hassles of nondeterminism in classical system. The primary applications will be to develop a constraint solver on GPU in this language, and to work in collaboration with Sparc which develops a plasma simulation tool.
