Classical Forces

Bonded

Non-Bonded

Bonds

Dihedrals

Van der Waals

Electrostatic

Angles

Reaction Field (RF)

PME

- Bond forces:acts only within pairs of molecules
- Angle forces: acts only within a triad of atoms
- Torsion or dihedral forces: acts only within quartet of atoms

- Van derWaals or Lennard-Jones potential: Decays rapidly with distance

- A cutoff of ~10A, accurately captures the effect of the Van der Waals potential

- Coulomb Potential: inverse square law

- Decays as 1/r with distance
- Since 1/r decays rather slowly, the potential can act over long distances

- Choosing a cutoff for electrostatic force/potential causes computational errors and inaccuracy
- Our solutions to sum long distance electrostatic forces:
- Reaction Force Field (RF)
- Ewald summation / Particle Mesh Ewald (PME)

- A single thread is assigned to each atom
- For each atom a set of lists is maintained:
- Bond list stores list of bonds the atom belongs to
- Angle list stores list of angles the atom belongs to
- Dihedral list stores list of dihedrals the atom belongs to
- Nonbond list stores non-bond interactions with atoms within cutoff

Nonbond list for q5:

- MD simulations are iterative executions of MD steps
- Each iteration computes forces on each particle due to:
- Bonds – Bond List
- Angles – Angle List
- Dihedrals – Dihedral List
- Electrostatic
- Van der Waals

- If Ewald summation is used an additional component is added:
- Longdistance interaction using PME method

Bond, angle, anddihedral lists are unchanged for each atom throughout the simulation

Nonbondlist is updated based on acutoff buffer

- NonbondList

- Global neighbor list
- Each thread can iterate through the global list of atoms to build the nonbondlist

- Cell-based neighbor list
- Divide the domain into equal cells of size = cutoff
- Search only in current cell and adjacent cells for neighboring atoms
- There are 26 adjacent cells and 1 current cell in 3-dimensions

- Cell-based list is computationally very efficient but also needs regular cell updates

- Single thread manages a single or a set of cells
- Each cell is managed by a list of atoms in the cell called ‘CellList’
- When an atom ‘i’ moves from Cell A to Cell B, the thread responsible for Cell A updates the list of Cell B via thread safe integer atomic intrinsics
- Invalid atoms are removed from the cell lists by the ‘CellClean’kernel

Region of influence

- Any molecule is surrounded by spherical cavity of finite radius
- Within the radius, electrostatic interactions are calculated explicitly
- Outside the cavity, the system is treaded as a dielectric continuum

- This model allows the replacement of the infinite Coulomb sum by a finite sum plus the reaction filed
where the second terms is the reaction filed correction and Rc is the radius of the cavity

Coulomb

potential

- Proposed by Paul Peter Ewald in 1921 for crystallographic systems
- Has found applications in molecular, astrophysical and crystallographic systems
- Used to sum inverse distance potential over long distance efficiently – e.g., Gravity and Coulomb Potential.
- Was started to be used in the late 70s for numerical simulations
- O(NlogN) instead of O(NxN)

- Three contributions to the total energy, depending on the distance of the interaction:
- Direct space (Edir)
- Reciprocal space (Erec)
- Self energy (Eself)

- Divide interactions into short range (Direct Space) and long range (Reciprocal Space)

Short Range

which have to be summed

Compute force on atom i by calculating

- Each charge is spread on a 4x4x4 = 64 grid points in 3-D
- Grid spacing 1 A by a cardinal B-Spline of order 4
- Create a 3 dimensional Charge Matrix “Q”.

- Mesh-based charge density
- Approximation by sum of charges at each grid point
- Multiple charges can influence a single lattice point

Charges

xiyizi: position of the ith charge; k1k2k3: index of the lattice point

- B-Splinehas a region of influence of 4 units
- Each unit = 1A

- During charge spreadingB-Splinehas an impact on the neighboring 4x4x4 cells in 3 dimensions

- Charge Spreading by a cardinal B-Spline of order 4:
- CPU implementation is straightforward
- Time computation: Natomsx 4 x 4 x 4 time steps

- GPU implementation is hard to parallelize
- Can lead to racing conditions - need floating point atomic writes

- Current version of CUDA supports atomic writes for integers only
- Charges need to be converted to fixed point in order to utilize the functionality

CPU spreading of charges:

GPU gathering of charges by a cardinal B-Spline of order 4:

Each thread is assigned

to a lattice point

- Charge spreading on GPU can be parallelized easily by the grid points instead of the atoms
- Each thread works on a single or a set of grid points
- Need O(ax*ay*az) threads, with each thread parsing through all the atoms within 4x4x4 neighborhood –> O(N)

- Each lattice point maintains a list of atoms within 4x4x4 neighborhood for charge gathering

Neighbor list of point:

- When a charge moves, several lattice points need to be updated
- The charge is added to the neighbor list of lattice points in dark gray
- The charge is removed from the neighbor list of lattice points in light gray
- Lattice points in white are not affected
- Since there are equal number of light gray and dark gray lattice points, a 1-to-1 mapping was devised

- When a single lattice point is updated by multiple threads, thread safe integer atomic intrinsics are used to update the cell lists

- CUFFT provides library functions to compute FFT and inverse FFT
- 3D FFT implemented with series of 1D FFTs and transpositions

- CUFFTExeccan be optimized by choosing proper FFT dimensions
- Power of 2

- One-third of the human genome is composed of membrane-bound proteins
- Pharmaceuticals target membrane-bound protein receptors e.g., G-protein coupled receptors
- Importance of systems to human health and understanding of dysfunction

- State-of-the-art simulations only consider small regions (or patches) of physiological membranes
- Heterogeneity of the membrane spans length scales much larger than included in these smaller model systems.
- Our goal: apply large-scale GPU-enabled computations for the study of large membrane regions
