Computational Physics Research Laboratory

Computational Physics Research Laboratory (CPRL) is being used by students working in the area of computational and theoretical physics. In addition to Magus, SNU's 64-node (1008 cores) IBM HPC cluster—a central facility, computational facilities at the CPRL include several stand-alone Linux workstations and i7-computers. These machines are used for research purposes by graduate and undergraduate Physics students to perform calculations based on wave-function based methodology, density functional theory (DFT), time-dependent DFT, Monte Carlo Methods, Molecular dynamics, etc. Several simulation codes/packages like Quantum ESPRESSO, KWANT, SMMP, LAMMPS, VESTA, VMD, MATLAB, etc., in addition to self-developed codes, are available in the lab.
