Efficient Implementation of Many-Body Quantum Chemical Methods on the Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessor

SESSION: Quantum Simulations in Materials and Chemistry


TIME: 4:00PM - 4:30PM


AUTHOR(S):Edoardo Apra, Michael Klemm, Karol Kowalski



This paper presents the implementation and performance of the highly accurate CCSD(T) quantum chemistry method on the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor within the context of the NWChem computational chemistry package.
The widespread use of highly correlated methods in electronic structure calculations is contingent upon the interplay between advances in theory and the possibility of utilizing the ever-growing computer power of emerging heterogeneous architectures.
We discuss the design decisions of our implementation as well as the optimizations applied to the compute kernels and data transfers between host and coprocessor.
We show the feasibility of adopting the Intel Many Integrated Core Architecture and the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor for developing efficient computational chemistry modeling tools.
Remarkable scalability is demonstrated by benchmarks. Our solution scales up to a total of 62560 cores with the concurrent utilization of Intel Xeon processors and Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors.
