Coming Soon: Research in a Cloud
November/December 2008 (vol. 10 no. 6)
pp. 6-10
Graphic processing units (GPU) provide an impressive amount of computer power at an unprecedented low cost. The authors describe the main features of HOOMD (highly optimized object oriented molecular dynamics), a software package that makes molecular dynamics simulations on GPUs available to general users. Also, a news sidebar by Joshua A. Anderson and Alex Travesset on Molecular Dynamics on Graphic Processing Units: HOOMD to the Rescue.
Index Terms:
molecular dynamics, GPU, graphic processing unit, HOOMD, highly optimized object-oriented molecular dynamics, memory clusters, Compute Unified Device Architecture, CUDA, GPU computing
