OpenPixi - Open Colored Particle-in-Cell (CPIC) simulator. Copyright (C) 2012-2016


OpenPixi is an open Colored Particle-In-Cell (CPIC) simulator based on real-time lattice gauge theory and the CPIC method. It simulates Yang-Mills fields coupled to moving colored particles, in particular the early stages of heavy-ion collisions within the Color Glass Condensate framework.

A publication using this simulation is available at, where you also find details about the numerical methods implemented in OpenPixi.

The old Abelian PIC is still available at

OpenPixi is being developed in Java, with an educational aspect in mind.
