SIESTA is both a method and its computer program implementation, to perform efficient electronic structure calculations and ab initio molecular dynamics simulations of molecules and solids. More information can be found from here.

The April 2014 HPC Tech Talk (Tuesday, April 22th from 4-5PM) will provide some brief OSC updates, have a user-driven Q&A session, and will close with an invited talk about MPI-3 from the MVAPICH developers from The Ohio State University.

As a general recommendation, we suggest selecting the newest compilers available for a new project. For repeatability, you may not want to change compilers in the middle of an experiment.

This page describes how to specify user defined material to use within LS-DYNA.  The user-defined subroutines in LS-DYNA allow the program to be customized for particular applications.  In order to define user material, LS-DYNA must be recompiled.

The March 2014 HPC Tech Talk (Tuesday, March 18th from 4-5PM) will provide some brief OSC updates, have a user-driven Q&A session, and will close with a live demonstration of OSC's OnDemand service. You can register for the WebEX session here. Slides are available below.

The February 2014 SUG HPC Tech Talk focused on using the NVIDIA GPUs for computational chemistry. Slides are attached.

Begining in February 2014 we started conducting nominally monthly online conference calls titled "HPC Tech Talks". These are intended to reach active users on our systems and provide an engagement opportunity for users to learn about recent changes to our production services, and for staff to learn about issues impacting the user community. Additionally, we use this opportunity to provide a more in-depth view of one particular topic.
