The functionality of GooFit, a GPU-friendly framework for doing maximum-likelihood fits, has been extended to extract model-independent S-wave amplitudes in three-body decays such as $D^+ to h^+h^+h^-$. A full amplitude analysis is done where the magnitudes and phases of the S-wave amplitudes are anchored at a finite number of $m^2(h^+h^-)$ control points, and a cubic spline is used to interpolate between these points. The amplitudes for P-wave and D-wave intermediate states are modeled as spin-dependent Breit-Wigner resonances. GooFit uses the Thrust library, with a CUDA backend for NVIDIA GPUs and an OpenMP backend for threads with conventional CPUs. Performance on a variety of platforms is compared. Executing on systems with GPUs is typically a few hundred times faster than executing the same algorithm on a single CPU.
