Optimization and Augmentation for Data Parallel Contour Trees


Contour trees are used for topological data analysis in scientific visualization. While originally computed with serial algorithms, recent work has introduced a vector-parallel algorithm. However, this algorithm is relatively slow for fully augmented contour trees which are needed for many practical data analysis tasks. We therefore introduce a representation called the hyperstructure that enables efficient searches through the contour tree and use it to construct a fully augmented contour tree in data parallel, with performance on average 6 times faster than the state-of-the-art parallel algorithm in the TTK topological toolkit.
