WarpX is an advanced, time-based, electromagnetic & electrostatic Particle-In-Cell code.

It supports many features including:

  • Perfectly-Matched Layers (PML)

  • Boosted-frame simulations

  • Mesh refinement

For details on the algorithms that WarpX implements, see the theory section.

WarpX is a highly-parallel and highly-optimized code, which can run on GPUs and multi-core CPUs, and includes load balancing capabilities. WarpX scales to the world’s largest supercomputers and was awarded the 2022 ACM Gordon Bell Prize. In addition, WarpX is also a multi-platform code and runs on Linux, macOS and Windows.
