U-M software package HOOMD-blue chosen as benchmark for new GPU performance by NVIDIA

By April 13, 2016General Interest, News

HOOMD-blue, a University of Michigan-produced software package for particle simulation, was chosen as one of seven benchmark applications to demonstrate the speed of NVIDIA’s new Tesla P100 GPU.

HOOMD-blue was developed by Prof. Sharon Glotzer’s research group. It lets users define particle initial conditions and interactions in a high-level Python script. Python job scripts provide the flexibility to create custom initialization routines, control simulation parameters, and perform in situ analysis.

Webinars title “Introduction to HOOMD-blue” and “Using HOOMD-blue for Polymer Simulations and Big Systems” are available for viewing.
