Abstract: RP Photonics announces the Numerical Power Package as an add-on to RP Fiber Power. This enhances the speed of certain simulations by more than a factor of 5.

You may have wondered why there were hardly any Software News postings in recent months. This was because for more than one year I was fairly busy with a big programming project (apart from many other things) on which I couldn't talk yet. However, this is now finished.

Most users of our main software product – RP Fiber Power are fully satisfied with its computation speed. Most of the supplied demo scripts can be executed on an ordinary PC within at most a couple of seconds, and in many practical applications, computational speed is no issue at all, even if a not particularly fast computer is used.

However, there are situations where a sophisticated simulation requires substantial computation time – particularly in the following contexts:

Therefore, some small percentage of the users of this software has applications where a substantially faster execution is quite desirable. To address that need, we are now offering (with moderate additional cost) the Numerical Power Package as an add-on to RP Fiber Power which provides the following:

Some more numerical features of the Numerical Power Package may be developed, and those will then be delivered to existing customers as free updates.

On request, we can also offer the Numerical Power Package as an add-on to our other software products (e.g. RP Resonator), but as it affects only special functions tbere, this will probably be of interest only in rare cases.

You can find more details – in particular, the technical background and the requirements on the user's side – on a new page of our website, discussing the speed of RP Fiber Power.
