Parallel version?
« on: July 18, 2007, 01:32:06 pm »
Hi,

is there any intention to parallize the ESCF/EGRAD module?
What would be the gain in computational time?

All the best,

Hi

The modules will certainly run parallel in the future. However, there is a whole list of modules that
have to be parallelized first (like aoforce) or where parallel performance has to be improved.
Generally, making program to run parallel, or more precise, to run parallel and efficiently is
mode difficult than many people think. Take example of some very popular QM programs which
still have only modest parallelization.
So stay tuned ... it will come  ;D
