Title Update on OPAL
Abstract OPAL (Object Oriented Parallel Accelerator Library) is a open source tool for charged-particle optics calculations in accelerator structures and beam lines including 3D space charge, short range wake-fields, 1D coherent synchrotron radiation and particle matter interaction. OPAL admits simulations of any scale, from the laptop to the largest HPC clusters. OPAL has a fast FFT based direct solver and an iterative solver with AMR, able to handle efficiently exact boundary conditions on complex geometries. We will discuss new capabilities such as Graphical Processing Units (GPUs) support, turning your workstation into a super computer, time dependent fields necessary for modelling FFAGs, synchrotrons and synchro-cyclotrons and the creation of matched distributions with linear space charge.
