Some recent good news for the UCLA plasma simulation group.  The group recently received $1.78 million from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to develop a cluster of 192 General Purpose Graphical Processing Units to compute at “Warp” speed. This new cluster is named DAWSON2 in honour of the group’s founder. DAWSON2 is dedicated for the study of particle-in-cell simulations of plasmas. The group is actively investigating new strategies for PIC codes to run on many new core architectures including clusters of GPUs.  UCLA Plasma Simulation Group
