Abstract

Computer simulations are used in the design of next-generation particle accelerators for modeling. To meet design requirements and to reduce cost and technological risk in the later stages of accelerator design, construction, and operations, very high-resolution modeling is essential. The scale and complexity of these computer simulations requires the use of powerful high-performance computing platforms using software and algorithms targeted to parallel and distributed environments as well as advanced data analysis and visualization tools that make it possible to understand the resulting terabytes of simulation data. This chapter illustrates the visualization challenges introduced by the most advanced particle accelerator simulations and describe visualization solutions derived to address these challenges. Two primary visualization problems are considered: first, the problem of visualizing very dense point data and second, visualizing very dense line data. While these two problems are specific to accelerator physics data, the techniques described in the chapter are also suited to any other applications concerned with the visualization of particle and field line data. © 2005
