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.
