Parallel Implementation of a Cellular Automaton Model for the Simulation of Laser Dynamics
A parallel implementation for distributed-memory MIMD systems of a 2D discrete model of laser dynamics based on cellular automata is presented.The model has been implemented on a PC cluster using a message passing library. A good performance has been obtained, allowing us to run realistic simulations of laser systems in clusters of workstations, which could not be afforded on an individual machine due to the extensive runtime and memory size needed.
