Follow the Light: Plasma Physics on 18,000 GPUs
Abstract:
We show that with todays largest supercomputers it is possible to follow the trajectories of billions of particles, computing a unique fingerprint of their dynamics. With the use of 18,000 GPUs we could compute a 'sky map' of the radiation emitted by individual electrons in a large-scale, turbulent plasma, providing unique insight into the relation between the plasma dynamics and observable radiation spectra.
