Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present the simulation tools which have been developed at ESO to simulate adaptive optics for extremely large telescopes, and in particular OWL. These tools are based on dedicated hardware (a cluster of PCs) and dedicated software, written in C, and which is parallelized. We present here some details on the hardware itself, and also how the simulation software has been parallelized.
