A massively parallel algorithm for the solution of constrained equations of motion with applications to largescale, longtime molecular dynamics simulations
Successful molecular dynamics (MD) simulation of large systems (> million atoms) for long times (> nanoseconds) requires the integration of constrained equations of motion (CEOM). Constraints are used to eliminate high frequency degrees of freedom (DOF) and to allow the use of rigid bodies. Solving the CEOM allows for larger integration timesteps and helps focus the simulation on the important collective dynamics of chemical, biological, and materials systems. We explore advances in multibody dynamics which have resulted in O(N) algorithms for propagating the CEOM. However, because of their strictly sequential nature, the computational time required by these algorithms does notmore » 
Neural network simulations on massively parallel computers: Applications in chemical physics
A fully connected feedforward neural network is simulated on a number of parallel computers (MasPar1, Connection Machine CM5, Intel iPSC2 and iPSC860) and the performance is compared to that obtained on sequential vector computers (Cray YMP, Cray C90, IIBM3090) and to a scaler workstation (MM RISC6000). Peak performances of up to 342 million connections per second (MCPS) could be obtained on the Cray C90 using a single processor while the optimum performance obtained on the parallel computers was 90 MCPS using 4096 processors. Efficiency such as these has enabled neural network computations to be carried out for a number ofmore » 
Massively parallel molecular dynamics simulations of twodimensional materials at high strain rates
Large scale molecular dynamics simulations on a massively parallel computer are performed to investigate the mechanical behavior of 2dimensional materials. A pair potential and a model embedded atom manybody potential are examined, corresponding to brittle'' and ductile'' materials, respectively. A parallel MD algorithm is developed to exploit the architecture of the Connection Machine, enabling simulations of > 10[sup 6] atoms. A model spallation experiment is performed on a 2D triagonal crystal with a welldefined nanocrystalline defect on the spall plane. The process of spallation is modelled as a uniform adiabatic expansion. The spall strength is shown to be proportional tomore » 
Contactimpact simulations on massively parallel SIMD supercomputers
The implementation of explicit finite element methods with contactimpact on massively parallel SIMD computers is described. The basic parallel finite element algorithm employs an exchange process which minimizes interprocessor communication at the expense of redundant computations and storage. The contactimpact algorithm is based on the pinball method in which compatibility is enforced by preventing interpenetration on spheres embedded in elements adjacent to surfaces. The enhancements to the pinball algorithm include a parallel assembled surface normal algorithm and a parallel detection of interpenetrating pairs. Some timings with and without contactimpact are given.
