Computer simulations of complex particle systems have a strongly increasing impact in a broad field of physics, e.g. in astrophysics, statistical physics, plasma physics, material sciences or physical chemistry and biophysics. Along with the development of computer hardware, which nowadays shows a performance in the range of PFlop/s, it is essential to develop efficient and scalable algorithms which solve the physical problem. Since with more powerful computer systems usually also the problem size is increased, it is important to implement optimally scaling algorithms, which increase the computational effort proportionally to the number of particles. Especially in fields, where long-range interactions between particles have to be considered the numerical effort is usually very demanding.
This CECAM School is organized by Godehard Sutmann, Ivo Kabadshow and Paul Gibbon (JSC) and will take place at Forschungszentrum Jülich, Jülich Supercomputing Centre.
