A fast parallel 3D Poisson solver with longitudinal periodic and transverse open boundary conditions for spacecharge simulations
Abstract
A threedimensional (3D) Poisson solver with longitudinal periodic and transverse open boundary conditions can have important applications in beam physics of particle accelerators. Here, we present a fast efficient method to solve the Poisson equation using a spectral finitedifference method. This method uses a computational domain that contains the charged particle beam only and has a computational complexity of $$O(N_u (logN_{mode}))$$, where $$N_u$$ is the total number of unknowns and $$N_{mode}$$ is the maximum number of longitudinal or azimuthal modes. This saves both the computational time and the memory usage of using an artificial boundary condition in a large extended computational domain. The new 3D Poisson solver is parallelized using a message passing interface (MPI) on multiprocessor computers and shows a reasonable parallel performance up to hundreds of processor cores.
