A Math "Shortcut" Opens Opportunities for Chemistry

bk plus4

A new math “shortcut” developed by CRD's Chao Yang is speeding up molecular absorption calculations by a factor of five, so simulations that used to take 10 to 15 hours to compute can now be done in approximately 2.5 hours. The algorithm will be incorporated in an upcoming release of the widely used NWChem computational chemistry suite. » Read More

Record-breaking 45-qubit Quantum Computing Simulation Run at NERSC

June 1, 2017

Researchers from ETH Zurich in Switzerland used the Cori supercomputer at NERSC to simulate a 45-qubit circuit, the largest simulation of a quantum computer ever achieved. They also used CRD's Roofline Model to improve code performance.

A Fresh Math Perspective Opens New Possibilities for Computational Chemistry

May 19, 2017

A new mathematical “shortcut” developed by Berkeley Lab researchers is speeding up molecular absorption calculations by a factor of five, so simulations that used to take 10 to 15 hours to compute can now be done in approximately 2.5 hours. These algorithms will be incorporated in an upcoming release of the widely used NWChem computational chemistry software suite later this year.
