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

Introduction

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 arXiv.org, where you also find details about the numerical methods implemented in OpenPixi.

The old Abelian PIC is still available at https://github.com/openpixi/openpixi_pic.

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