NAME: PMD - Parallel Molecular Dynamics.
Description: Announcements and Discussion about the parallel molecu-
lar dynamics program PMD. PMD is an experimental program writ-
ten in C and implementing the fast multipole algorithm of Green-
gard and Rokhlin. It is easily portable between different UNIX sys-
tem architectures and message passing protocols. PMD calculates
a good approximation of the full long-range Coulomb interactions
faster than conventional, much less accurate, cutoff methods. PMD
is also scalably parallel with distributed data storage. It has been
run on workstation networks as well as dedicated parallel machines
such as the CM-5 and the Intel Paragon. PMD is made freely avail-
able at this point to provide a flexible testing ground for advanced
algorithms to all interested researchers.
