Calculations on cloud-distributed mesh grids

In order to distribute mathematical problems onto a cluster, it is necessary to create a logical plan that maps the data array onto the logical computation nodes. In technological or scientific calculations, a real body or space often builds the basis for a fundamental description. For example, we want to calculate the strain inside a two-dimensional body or the heat transfer from one side to the other side of this body. In order to do this, it is necessary to describe this body in a mathematical manner.

The triangulation of a body mesh

To accomplish this description, you need to calculate all the physical properties of all infinitesimally small constituents of it. Usually, this would be atoms or molecules. However, a sugar cube already contains around 10 to the power of 21 atoms. These are thousands of billions of billions of atoms. If you want to store a few numbers, for example, eight double format floating point numbers for each of these atoms...
