    The current trend in processor technology is to improve processors with parallel architecture. What we need to do now is adapt to these platforms and develop parallel-data algorithms that exploit the proces-sors’ computational powers.

    In this study, the GPU is used as a parallel processor. We developed a method that implements a par-ticle-based simulation entirely on the GPU and delivers unprecedented performance. The method is applicable to several simulations, as shown in this movie. The motions of several tens of thousands of particles can be simulated in real time.
