The conductor-like polarization model (C-PCM) with switching/Gaussian smooth discretization is a widely used implicit solvation model in chemical simulations. However, its application in quantum mechanical calculations of large-scale biomolecular systems can be limited by computational expense of both the gas phase electronic structure and the solvation interaction. We have previously used graphical processing units (GPUs) […]

A new molecular simulation toolkit composed of some lately developed force fields and specified models is presented to study the self-assembly, phase transition, and other properties of polymeric systems at mesoscopic scale by utilizing the computational power of GPUs. In addition, the hierarchical self-assembly of soft anisotropic particles and the problems related to polymerization can […]

This MATLAB program calculates the dynamics of the reduced density matrix of an open quantum system modeled by the Feynman-Vernon model. The user gives the program a vector describing the coordinate of an open quantum system, a hamiltonian matrix describing its energy, and a spectral distribution function and temperature describing the environment’s influence on it, […]

We present teraflop-scale calculations of biomolecular electrostatics enabled by the combination of algorithmic and hardware acceleration. The algorithmic acceleration is achieved with the fast multipole method (FMM) in conjunction with a boundary element method (BEM) formulation of the continuum electrostatic model, as well as the BIBEE approximation to BEM. The hardware acceleration is achieved through […]

The use of graphics processing units (GPUs) in simulation applications offers a significant speed gain as compared to computations on central processing units (CPUs). Many simulation methods require a large number of independent random variables generated at each step. We present two approaches for implementation of random number generators (RNGs) on a GPU. In the […]

Langevin Dynamics, Monte Carlo, and all-atom Molecular Dynamics simulations in implicit solvent, widely used to access the microscopic transitions in biomolecules, require a reliable source of random numbers. Here we present the two main approaches for implementation of random number generators (RNGs) on a GPU, which enable one to generate random numbers on the fly. […]
