Hello Adrian,

Thank you for your prompt response and explanation. You mentioned earlier that we need to assign each cuboid per process. So, Will the number of cuboids be equivalent to the number of the processes(i.e tasks) defined in the SLURM script? When you say that it is problem dependent, does it mean that it is geometry dependent? If the geometry is complex, do we need to define more number of cuboids? Did the group conduct any testing to define the range of the number of cuboids to be used in regard to the geometry?

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Abhijeet C.
