Algorithms designed to efficiently solve this classical problem of physics fit very well on GPU hardware, and exhibit excellent scalability on many GPUs. Their computational intensity makes them a promising approach for many other applications amenable to an N-body formulation. Adding features such as auto-tuning makes multipole-type algorithms ideal for heterogeneous computing environments.
