picongpu on the jetson tk1

I was looking for interesting things to run on my cluster and found something called picongpu. It’s a gpu accelerated partical physics simulation package, and it’s simply awesome.

Last night it failed to compile, so I submitted a bug report via github. One of the developers fixed it and I re-tested today and it compiled perfectly! If anyone is interested in something cool for their Jetson check out the video / github below:

I haven’t quite gotten OpenMPI going with this yet but it seems to be possible!
