Abstract: The ComPASS project is a US DOE SciDAC-funded collaboration of national labs, universities and industrial partners dedicated to creating particle accelerator simulation software. The future of particle physics requires high-intensity accelerators, whose planning, construction and operation require high fidelity simulations. We describe the methods and algorithms the ComPASS collaboration has employed to produce software capable of efficiently utilizing today's and tomorrow's high performance computing hardware. We also present the results of some key simulations and show how they are advancing accelerator science.
