A parallel Self Mesh-Adaptive N-body method based on approximate inverses
by Kyziropoulos, P. E. and Filelis-Papadopoulos, C. K. and Gravvanis, G. A. and Efthymiopoulos, C.
Abstract:
A new parallel Self Mesh-Adaptive N-body method based on approximate inverses is proposed. The scheme is a three-dimensional Cartesian-based method that solves the Poisson equation directly in physical space, using modified multipole expansion formulas for the boundary conditions. Moreover, adaptive-mesh techniques are utilized to form a class of separate smaller n-body problems that can be solved in parallel and increase the total resolution of the system. The solution method is based on multigrid method in conjunction with the symmetric factored approximate sparse inverse matrix as smoother. The design of the parallel Self Mesh-Adaptive method along with discussion on implementation issues for shared memory computer systems is presented. The new parallel method is evaluated through a series of benchmark simulations using N-body models of isolated galaxies or galaxies interacting with dwarf companions. Furthermore, numerical results on the performance and the speedups of the scheme are presented.
