Libraries developed in the TREX Center of Excellence - poster presented at the CECAM Workshop 2022

Anthony Scemama; William Jalby; Vijay Gopal Chilkuri; Evgeny Posenitskiy; Pablo de Oliveira Castro; Cedric Valensi

The TREX European Center of Excellence focuses on high-accuracy quantum mechanical methods, essential in many different fields of application such as new material design or photochemistry. Among these methods, Quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) approaches are particularly well adapted to exascale architectures. Our ambition is to help the community take advantage of exascale machines through the use of our HPC software. We will review the presentation progress along the three following axes: ...Read more

D6.2 – First report on the status of organisation of training events and activities, including validation surveys. V1.0

Stich, Ivan

The current document D6.2 describes and details the structure of the training and education strategy and the plans of the events that have taken place at the time of writing and those planned for the remaining project lifetime. Various criteria are used to sort most of the planned activities: a distinction is made based on the subject (HPC, quantum chemistry), between the planned, upcoming and future events, between events internal to the consortium and events open to external audiences. Document D6.2 is structured into 6 Chapters. ...Read more

TREX at TERATEC 2022: Enabling the community codes for stochastic quantum chemical simulations at he exascale

Axel Auweter; Michele Casula; William Jalby; Sara Pittonet; Jean-Marc Denis; Romain Dolbeau; Marie-Ann Garigue; Craig Prunty

The poster was presented at Teratec 2022, June 14-15. Computers can perform extremely fast calculations which would take human beings years to accomplish, accelerating innovation to unprecedented levels. High-performance computing (HPC) and high-throughput computing (HTC) have enabled us to simulate large-scale complex processes and analyze tremendous amounts of data, benefitting applications ranging from climate research and drug discovery to material design. Emerging exascale computers will make the best even better, 50 times faster than today's most powerful supercomputers. ...Read more

D3.3 – Initial report on the performance characteristics on relevant hardware for upcoming supercomputers

Pleiter, Dirk

This deliverable documents the initial performance analysis results obtained for all 6 TREX flagship applications. The focus was, in particular, the scaling of the application and the ability to exploit parallelism at all the different levels of modern HPC architectures. This ranges from the efficient use of SIMD instructions to the use of highly parallel compute accelerators like Graphics Processing Units (GPUs). ...Read more

D3.2 – Initial public release of high-performance software components

Jalby, William

In this first document, after a brief Introduction (Section 1), we are describing the rationale for QMCkl design guidelines (Section 2). In particular, objectives and general methodology will be highlighted. Then, more precise details on the methodology will be given by walking through a detailed DGEMM example (Section 3). Finally, some preliminary performance results on a key QMCkl routine (JASTROW computation will be given). ...Read more

D4.2 – Report on algorithms for exascale robustness (fault tolerance and large-scale communications) in QMC flagship codes

Alavi, Ali

We expect exascale machines to enable QMC applications on larger systems than those that can be treated today. This implies that systems will have larger numbers of electrons, and/or larger Configuration Interaction (CI) expansions. In this Work Package (WP), we investigate ways to overcome new difficulties that will arise when running exascale simulations. ...Read more

D2.4 – Report on pre-release of an integrated platform with inter-operable Open Source flagship codes, including the I/O and, gradually, the QMCkl libraries

Sorella, Sandro

The TREX project is in the field of high-accuracy quantum chemical and materials simulations with a special focus on Quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) approaches to the solution of the quantum many-body problem at the heart of atomistic physics, chemistry, and materials science. Importantly, due to their inherent parallelizability and high computational cost, QMC approaches, and thus TREX is uniquely positioned to fully exploit the massive parallelism of the upcoming exascale supercomputer architectures. ...Read more
