Abstract
We present the Parallel Particle-Mesh Environment (PPME), a domainspecific language (DSL) and development environment for numerical simulations using particles and hybrid particle-mesh methods. PPME is the successor of the Parallel Particle-Mesh Language (PPML), a Fortran-based DSL that provides high-level abstractions for the development of distributed-memory particle-mesh simulations. On top of PPML, PPME provides a complete development environment for particle-based simulations usin state-of-the-art language engineering and compiler construction techniques. Relying on a novel domain metamodel and formal type system for particle methods, it enables advanced static code correctness checks at the level of particle abstractions, complementing the low-level analysis of the compiler. Furthermore, PPME adopts Herbie for improving the accuracy of floating-point expressions and supports a convenient high-level mathematical notation for equations and differential operators. For demonstration purposes, we discuss an example from Discrete Element Methods (DEM) using the classic Silbert model to simulate granular flows.
