Particle-based Simulation Software for Wide-ranging Space-time Applications

Simulation methods for hydrodynamics and structural analysis can be divided into grid-based and particle-based methods. In the latter case, physical values are assigned to particles, while the partial differential equation is approximated by the interactions between particles. Particle-based methods have been used to study phenomena ranging in scale from the molecular to the entire Universe. Historically, software programs for these applications have been developed independently, even though they share many attributes. We are currently developing a “universal” software application that can be applied to problems encompassing molecules to the Universe, and yet runs efficiently on highly parallel computers such as the K computer.
