Parallel and high-performance computing

 SanD is developing a custom-built heterogeneous Linux cluster for its computational tasks. Our high-performance computing (HPC) facility currently consists of 84 computing cores and 7296 CUDA cores. In addition to learning how to use open-source production code like LAMMPS (molecular dynamics) and Quantum ESPRESSO (density functional theory) our students also acquire HPC systems administration skills and expertise.
