Principal Investigator:

Dr. Vladimir Mironov

Dr. Vladimir Mironov graduated in 2009. In 2013 he earned his Ph.D. degree from the Lomonosov Moscow State University and continued his research at the Department of Chemistry. His scientific interests are focused on computational biology and computer simulations of large molecular systems.


The aim of this project is to demonstrate potential of the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor technology for solving quantum chemistry problems, using one of oldest and popular open-source quantum chemistry GAMESS software. Performance-critical sections of GAMESS code would be revised and rewritten to improve the performance and scalability on the modern parallel architectures such as Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor. During the course of the project we focus mostly on Hartree-Fock (HF) and density functional theory (DFT) methods. Next, parallelization strategies of fragment molecular orbitals (FMO) methods will be studied to maximize performance on this method on the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
