Abstract

A parallel version of a Lattice Boltzmmm Equation algorithm, which simulates the electrostatic plasma turbulence, has been developed using the High Performance Fortran language. The algorithm evolves a system of particle populations on a discrete lattice and dataparallel implementation has been performed by a regular domain decomposition. System evolution requires both completely local and non-local operations, involving communication between processors. Communication phase has been minimized using local HPF procedures. Efficiency tests of the parallel code, performed on a 9076 IBM-SP2 parallel computer, have given satisfactory results.
