Sampling Atomic Systems With Molecular Dynamics in Julia

A talk by Michael Prentiss:

Molecular dynamics is an algorithm developed to sample atomic systems. In fields from material science to biochemistry, this method has been extensively used to study a wide variety of materials. The method has been so useful it was the subject of a recent Noble Prize in Chemistry. Most molecular dynamics codes have traditionally been written in Fortran or C, but Julia is an interesting new candidate. Julia's integrated parallelism and interfaces with different languages makes Julia an excellent language for modern scientific computation. I will present my experience porting and optimizing molecular dynamics code into Julia.

The talk will be followed by the usual beers and chips (no fries) downstairs at the Billy Goat Tavern.

    Nice talk & good discussion along the way. I learned all sorts of new things about chemistry simulations. Thanks Mike!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
