GeoPense Announces it has Joined QMC@home Project
Date:11/24/2009

The GeoPense World Volunteer Computing Team has joined the QMC@home project. This project applies the Quantum Monte Carlo method to problems in Quantum Chemistry. The purpose is to simulate molecules important in life science research. This project joins Folding@home (protein folding simulation), Einstein@home (gravity wave detection), and GPUGrid (molecular biology) efforts currently underway.

(PRWEB) November 24, 2009 -- GeoPense has announced its participation in the QMC@home project. This project applies Quantum Monte Carlo methods to predict molecular structure. GeoPense is an effort is to bring together widely distributed computing power to be applied to several tasks in the realm of scientific research.

Theoretical research in the life sciences requires the simulation of molecular structure. At the atomic and molecular level, Quantum Mechanics dominates. Quantum Theory is applicable to chemistry and life sciences only after intelligent approximations are made (due to the unwieldy nature of the equations). The most promising of these approximations is the Quantum Monte Carlo method. This method uses random numbers (hence the name) to quantify solutions to the Schrödinger equation. This process requires huge amounts of computing power.

GeoPense endeavours to gather computing resources from government, health care, education, industry and individuals for this purpose. Assistance is given freely to those participating. When set up properly, this computing power uses only dormant computer time, resulting in no adverse effect on the day-to-day operations of an institution. On-site assistance, mentoring, and presentations are all available upon request. In addition, active displays of project status can be set up, providing excellent public viewing of an institution's participation. Participants can also download a certificate suitable for framing and display, showing current work achieved in any of several projects.
