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
N being the number of particles).
Since this product can be quite large,
we simulate the particle-particle interaction on GPUs
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.
