A Particle-In-Cell code is a common particle simulation method often used to simulate the behaviour of plasma. In this work, a parallel PIC code is developed in CUDA, with a focus on how to adapt the method for multiple GPUs. An electrostatic three dimensional PIC code is developed, with an FFT-based solver using the cuFFT […]

Interactions between surfaces and proteins occur in many vital processes and are crucial in biotechnology: the ability to control specific interactions is essential in fields like biomaterials, biomedical implants and biosensors. In the latter case, biosensor sensitivity hinges on ligand proteins adsorbing on bioactive surfaces with a favorable orientation, exposing reaction sites to target molecules. […]

Molecular dynamics simulations allow us to study the behavior of complex biomolecular systems by modeling the pairwise interaction forces between all atoms. Molecular systems are subject to slowly decaying electrostatic potentials, which turn molecular dynamics into an n-body problem. In this paper, we present a parallel and scalable solution to compute long-range molecular forces, based […]

Currently, medical research for the discovery of new drugs is increasingly using Virtual Screening (VS) methods. In these methods, the calculation of the non-bonded interactions, such as electrostatic or van der Waals, plays an important role, representing up to 80% of the total execution time. These are computationally intensive operations, and massively parallel in nature, […]

Methods for Molecular Dynamics(MD) simulations are investigated. MD simulation is the widely used computer simulation approach to study the properties of molecular system. Force calculation in MD is computationally intensive. Parallel programming techniques can be applied to improve those calculations. The major aim of this paper is to speed up the MD simulation calculations by/using […]

The Poisson-Boltzmann equation models the electrostatic potential generated by fixed charges on a polarizable solute immersed in an ionic solution. This approach is often used in computational Structural Biology to estimate the electrostatic energetic component of the assembly of molecular biological systems. In the last decades the amount of structural data concerning proteins and other […]

We investigated the possible way for treatment of electrostatic interactions by solving numerically Poisson’s equation using Conjugate Gradient method and Stabilized BiConjugate Gradient method. The aim of the research was to test the execution time of prototype programs running on BLueGene/P and CPU/GPU system. The results show that the tested methods are applicable for electrostatics […]

The continuum theory applied to bimolecular electrostatics leads to an implicit-solvent model governed by the Poisson-Boltzmann equation. Solvers relying on a boundary integral representation typically do not consider features like solvent-filled cavities or ion-exclusion (Stern) layers, due to the added difficulty of treating multiple boundary surfaces. This has hindered meaningful comparisons with volume-based methods, and […]

The aim of this dCSE project was to improve the TBE code which is based on the tight binding model with self consistent multipole charge transfer. Given an appropriate parameterisation, the code is general and can be used to simulate a wide variety of systems and phenomena such as bond breaking, charge and magnetic polarisation. […]

Visualising and simulating charged plasma systems present additional challenges to conventional particle methods. Plasmas exhibit multi scale phenomena that often prevent the use of standard localisation approximations. Plasmas as particle systems that emit light are important in many interesting components of games, computer animated movies such as weapons fire, explosions, astronomical effects. They also have […]

Emergent heterogeneous systems must be optimized for both power and performance at exascale. Massive parallelism combined with complex memory hierarchies form a barrier to efficient application and architecture design. These challenges are exacerbated with GPUs as parallelism increases orders of magnitude and power consumption can easily double. Models have been proposed to isolate power and […]

The PyGBe code solves the linearized Poisson-Boltzmann equation using a boundary-integral formulation. We use a boundary element method with a collocation approach, and solve it via a Krylov-subspace method. To do this efficiently, the matrix-vector multiplications in the Krylov iterations are accelerated with a treecode, achieving O(N log N) complexity. The code presents a Python […]
