Assignment 3
In our attempts to make the kernel scalable with ghost cells, we scaled along one dimension. However, we were inconsistent in our scaling. The 1D kernel scaled along the n (y) dimension while the 2d kernels scaled along the m (x) dimension. Scaling along the x dimension, while allowing results to be testable between serial and 2D parallelized versions of the code, produced distributions that were strangely banded and skewed. In other words, we made the code render weird things faster:
