This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2018) Abstract T3PS is a program that can be used to quickly design and perform parameter scans while easily taking advantage of the multi-core architecture of current processors. It takes an easy to read and write parameter scan definition file format as input. Based on the parameter ranges and other options contained therein, it distributes the calculation of the parameter space over multiple processes and possibly computers. The derived data is saved in a plain text file format readable by most plotting ... Title of program: T3PS Catalogue Id: AEXZ_v1_0 Nature of problem While current processor architecture firmly goes the way of parallelization even on desktop computers, programs commonly used for parameter scans in physics often lack the capability to take advantage of this. While it is possible to change the source code of some programs, it may not be feasible for every program still in use. Fortunately, current operating system routinely make use of multiple processor cores already, if multiple processes are running at the same time. The easiest way to make ...
