My Senior Individualized Project at Argonne's Mathematics and Computer Science Division in the Fall of 1993 focuses primarily on two aspects of the TDGL code's continuing evolution. First, the code must be flexible enough to allow for the incorporation of various physical scenarios, such as material defects and fluctuating external magnetic fields. Second, the TDGL code should be portable, so that it is executable on various different computer architectures, from a collection of networked Sun SparcStations to a 128-node IBM parallel machine. Much as its original parallelization did, augmenting the computer code's flexibility in these two areas makes it a more powerful and efficient model of the behavior of magnetic flux lines in Type-II high-Tc superconductors.
