Particle-in-cell (PIC) simulation has been widely used in physics and engineering. In this paper, we give an analysis of the particle-field decomposition method and the domain decomposition method in parallel particle-in-cell beam dynamics simulation. The parallel performance of the two decomposition methods was studied on the Cray XT4 and the IBM Blue Gene… CONTINUE READING
