Fully parallel algorithm for simulating dispersionmanaged wavelengthdivisionmultiplexed optical fiber systems
Abstract
An efficient numerical algorithm is presented for massively parallel simulations of dispersionmanaged wavelengthdivisionmultiplexed optical fiber systems. The algorithm is based on a weak nonlinearity approximation and independent parallel calculations of fast Fourier transforms on multiple CPUs. The algorithm allows one to implement numerical simulations M/2 times faster than a direct numerical simulation by a splitstep method, where M is a number of CPUs in parallel network.
