Accelerator ModelingAccelerator modeling activities at FermilabFermilab's Computational Physics for Accelerators group develops accelerator modeling software and applies it to current problems in accelerator physics. In addition, Fermilab leads ComPASS, a multi-institutional HPC accelerator modeling project funded by SciDAC. Accelerator modeling software developmentWe develop and support the single-particle beam dynamics code CHEF and the multi-particle beam dynamics framework Synergia, which uses CHEF. Accelerator modeling applications
Simulations of collective beam effects
Complex Codes and Infrastructure being adapted for HPC, GPUs and ExascaleWe run our modeling codes on parallel clusters located at Fermilab, at the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) and at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF). The codes are being prepared for the Exascale era facilities (Hybrid MPIOpenMP/ GPU version in progress) using communication avoidance for improved scalability in multi-level parallelism.
