Parallel molecular mechanics calculations
Bissland L., White DNJ.
This paper describes the parallelisation of a sequential FORTRAN molecular mechanics program to run on novel hardware, where each node processor has a dedicated high speed link to the host processor, and to all of the other nodes. The host processor can broadcast code/data to the nodes over these direct links using an overhead free hardware mechanism. The broadcast hardware is supported by the COMFORT message passing subroutine library.
