We give an overview of some strategies for mapping unstructured meshes onto processor grids. Sample results show that the mapping can make a considerable difference to the communication overhead in the parallel solution time, particularly as the number of processors increase.
Key words. mapping, processor topology, graph-partitioning, unstructured meshes, load-balancing, parallel scientific computation.
