Amitis is a three-dimensional (3D in space and 3D in velocity domain) time-dependent multi-species grid-based framework for space and plasma physics that allows real-time simulations. The updated version of Amitis runs in parallel on multi-GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) platforms using NVIDIA GPUs.
The current version contains a hybrid-kinetic plasma solver (kinetic ions and fluid electrons) which can be applied to planetary and fundamental plasma research.
