Efficient Implementation and Evaluation of Parallel Radio Wave Propagation
For planning, analysis, and optimization of modern, self organizing radio networks field strength prediction plays an essential role. A huge number of predictions is needed for planning purposes while high quality and level of detail are important as well. In this paper, the authors present a promising ray optical approach for radio wave propagation to meet those demands. As the performance improvement of processors has shifted from higher clock speed to more cores, their redesign of a radio wave propagation algorithm supports parallel hardware architectures.
