Implementing methods of PIC simulation by a special purpose computer system for gravitational N-body problems

Abstract

Particle In Cell (PIC) simulation using GRAPE-6 (G6), a special-purpose computer for gravitational N-body problems, is demonstrated. The calculation time is decreased by approximately 20 times, as compared to the usual method. There are two problems associated with simulation of plasma by the G6. First, G6 calculates only Coulomb force and three-dimensional… (More)
