Proofofconcept implementation of the massively parallel algorithm for simulation of dispersionmanaged WDM optical fiber systems
Abstract
We perform a proofofconcept implementation of the massively parallel algorithm (P.M. Lushnikov, Opt. Lett., v. 27, 939 (2002)) for simulation of dispersionmanaged wavelengthdivisionmultiplexed optical fiber systems. Linear scalability of the algorithm with the number of computer cores is demonstrated. Exact result on the accuracy of the implemented algorithm is found analytically and confirmed numerically as well as it is compared with to accuracy of the standard splitstep algorithm.
