Complex number in OpenCL

Complex number in OpenCL - cl_complex Recently I've been involved in the developing of a library OpenCAL capable of  parallel execution of cellular automata  and finite differences models. I though it could have been fun to render some huge fractal with it and so I ended up writing some OpenCL code for the generation of Julia sets. Unfortunately OpenCL does not provide support for complex number (CUDA does, check the following link out: CUDA complex number example)  so I had to write it myself. The following might be useful to anyone with need of support for complex number operations as exponentiation, argument, modulus etc. in OpenCL.… Read More »Complex number in OpenCL
