Figure 1 Figure 1: UML diagram of WarpX. In addition to WarpX’s own source code (‘WarpX-Source’), functionalities are provided by three packages: AMReX for the handling of AMR, communication and load balancing, PICSAR for the low level individual PIC functionalities, and Warp (optional) for extra physics packages, alternate user interface and control.
