Short summary
The scalability of computational applications on current and next-generation supercomputers is increasingly limited by the cost of inter-process communication. We implement communication hiding data exchange in the High-Order Methods Modeling Environment (HOMME) for the time integration of the hydrostatic fluid equations using both the spectral-element and discontinuous Galerkin methods. The presented approach produces significant performance and scalability gains in large-scale simulations.
