Development of Bridge++ code set for lattice QCD
Lattice simulation has become an indispensable tool for nonperturbative analysis of gauge theories. To carry out such numerical studies on computers of modern architecture using sophisticated algorithms, a general-purpose code set will be expected as an infrastructure. In view of this situation a new code set Bridge++ is being developed, aiming at an extensible, readable and portable workbench for lattice QCD while keeping high performance at the same time. The code set is constructed with object-oriented design implemented in C++ programming language. The latest version 1.1 was released in 2013, covering most conventionally used lattice actions and numerical algorithms. In this talk the design and features of Bridge++ will be described, and the present status of the project will be reported.
