HOOMD-blue 0.9.2 release

April 6th, 2011

HOOMD-blue performs general-purpose particle dynamics simulations on a single workstation, taking advantage of NVIDIA GPUs to attain a level of performance equivalent to many cores on a fast cluster. Flexible and configurable, HOOMD-blue is currently being used for coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations of nano-materials, glasses, and surfactants, dissipative particle dynamics simulations (DPD) of polymers, and crystallization of metals.

HOOMD-blue 0.9.2 adds many new features. Highlights include:

  • Long-ranged electrostatics via PPPM
  • Support for CUDA 3.2 and 4.0
  • New neighbor list option to exclude by particle diameter (for pair.slj)
  • New syntax to specify multiple pair coefficients at once
  • Improved documentation
  • Significant performance boosts for small simulations
  • RPM and .deb packaging for CentOS, Fedora, and Ubuntu
  • and more

HOOMD-blue 0.9.2 is available for download under an open source license. Check out the quick start tutorial to get started, or check out the full documentation to see everything it can do.
