Abstract
The paper presents the boundary element method accelerated by Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors. An overview of the boundary element method for the 3D Laplace equation is given followed by the discretization and its parallelization using OpenMP and the offload feature of the Xeon Phi coprocessor is discussed. The results of numerical experiments for both single- and double-layer boundary integral operators are presented. In most cases the accelerated code significantly outperforms the original code running solely on Intel Sandy Bridge processors.
