Parallel PIC plasma simulation through particle decomposition techniques

B. Di Martino, S. Briguglio, G. Vlad, P. Sguazzero
2001 Parallel Computing  
Parallelization of a particle-in-cell (PIC) code has been accomplished through a"particle decomposition" technique instead of the more usual"domain decomposition" one.  ...  The adopted technique requires a moderate eort in porting the code in parallel form and results in intrinsic load balancing and modest inter-processor communication.  ...  Such a requirement, together with the above condition of large number of simulation particles per cell, brings to face simulations characterized by millions particles, beyond the limits of the computational  ...
