SCPonGPU

Simulation of strongly coupled plasma using GPUs

SCPonGPU is a code to simulate laser cooling of ions in storage rings and particle traps. In order to simulate the strong coupling of ions in these scenarios, the Coulomb interaction of all particles with each other is considered. This approach is called a molecular dynamics simulation, short MD, and has a computational complexity of NxN (with N being the number of particles). Since this product can be quite large, we simulate the particle-particle interaction on GPUs using CUDA, where we can exploit a highly parallel architecture to accelerate the simulation.

More info on this projected can be found in the wiki or in the Mark Down notes found in each directory.
