  • PyTrilinos provides python access to selected Trilinos packages: emerging from early stages, portability, completeness; parallelism; rapid prototyping; application development; unit testing; and numeric compatibility (migrating to NumPy). PyTrilinos complements and supplements the SciPy package.
  • We have investigated parallel solvers for reservoir simulation. We compare different solvers and preconditioners using T3D and SP1 parallel computers. We use block diagonal domain decomposition preconditioner with non-overlapping sub-domains.
  • Large-scale modeling on parallel computers is playing an increasingly important role in the design of future light sources. Such modeling provides a means to accurately and efficiently explore issues such as limits to beam brightness, emittance preservation, the growth of instabilities, etc. Recently the IMPACT codes suite was enhanced to be applicable to future light source design. Simulations with IMPACT-Z were performed using up to one billion simulation particles for the main linac of a future light source to study the microbunching instability. Combined with the time domain code IMPACT-T, it is now possible to perform large-scale start-to-end linac simulationsmore » for future light sources, including the injector, main linac, chicanes, and transfer lines. In this paper we provide an overview of the IMPACT code suite, its key capabilities, and recent enhancements pertinent to accelerator modeling for future linac-based light sources.« less
