Leiden Classical Project

Post by Buga1 » Tue Dec 11, 2007 1:14 am

Anything related to Leiden Classical.

Leiden Classical Homepage

Description:
The project does basic research based on Classical dynamics.
Surface science is one area of science that makes use of these Classical Dynamics methods. For Surface Science, the reactions of H2 (hydrogen) on various metal surfaces (Copper, Paladium and Platinum) are studied. These studies give us a better fundamental understanding of how elementary reactions occur on solids. This eventually will lead to a better understanding of the field of catalysis. This is where industry might evenetually benefit from. In big chemical plants, lot's of reactions take place and they can be more efficient, less poluting or more selective by using the right catalyst. But before you know what the best catalyst is, you need to understand how reactions take place on solids etc. etc. etc.
So you see, this project has not a direct application in the industry, but when considering the surface science, it will help in the basics of chemistry of industry. This project can also help other areas of science. Currently we also use this project to teach our students the fundamentals of classical dynamics and thus also the fundamentals of Molecular dynamics and Surface Science. This project has a lot to offer because of the generality of Classical Dynamics. It even allows you to start and do Classical Dynamics calculations yourself for whatever you like. This is why you have a personal queue and why you are allowed to submit to the grid. This is why the program is well documented and why a special Java3D graphical interface has been developed... So you see, this project has a lot to offer to any scientist / student ;-).

Milkyway and Primegrid are quickly approaching their 400K tier 3 positions in my standings. I've chosen Leiden to run up to either tier 3, 4 (200K), or tier 5 (100K).

Even though I'm currently miffed at Simap, I will be finishing it's run up to 600K (only 7 k away) at the beginning of Aug.

Just as a bookmark, I'm currently in 770th and the team is in 354th position.

Four days ago, I added WCG with equal resource share. Basically, when both projects were at 75K for me. I also am running enough Einstein to get them up to where I ran Simap to.

We've moved from 354 team position to 75th, team credit from 2033 to 74,384, and I've moved from 770th by TC to 146th. Also, looking at the "team stats" page, and at the team sig, Lieden has moved from the 10th position down on the right column to 11 positions up on the left, or Leiden is now our 19th highest project by TC.

Still working on it.

www.unitedboinc.com released a new project-news specific signature generator. Check it out here. The Leiden Classical specific version can be found here and the site can now also be reached through our main page under the bullet 'Community'.

12 May 2009 AEST:

As of this weekend researchers and students in Leiden can now also submit their 'Classical' jobs to the DutchGrid. LGI (Leiden Grid Infrastructure) was used to collect all the computing resources the Theoretical Chemistry group has access to into an easy to use interface. 'Classical' jobs submitted through LGI will end up on clusters, supercomputers, glite grid enabled computing elements and last but not least to computers of volunteers registered at this 'Leiden Classical' BOINC project. So keep up the crunching!

After having spent some time studying the theory on 'Modern Quantum Chemistry' students will today be running their first molecular dynamics simulations on Leiden Classical. Good luck!

Yesterday we tried to update the Classical application in light of a student project we are currently running. Apparently, the feeder has a limit in the number of versions of applications you can have on your project and it took a while to sort things out. In the end, we chose to prune the database from older versions of applications and the feeder is running again. Sorry about that...

16 Jun 2009 AEST:

Due to the unexpected application version limit problem on the 3rd, some linux hosts received trajtou workunits. Most of them run fine, some of them crash. The trajtou application for linux was retracted from the database last week, but some hosts keep on crunching, eventhough here in the databse no linux applications for trajtou exists anymore?! An application version update was forced to clear up the issue. Any linux hosts running trajtou, if you want you can cancel the workunits. Sorry about that...

24 Feb 2010:

Next month two students will start an LO1 project on Leiden Classical. Depending on their research interrest, they will start a new project or continue with an older project of predecessors. Recently also two students finished their LO2 project. Their report and benzene simulation input files can be found here. Progress on the phonon project can be read here and on the 29th and 30st of march, another EDGES / Almere Grid workshop is given. We will be there too.

One of the servers had a power glitch a day a go. Some intervention was needed; hence the down-time. Sorry.
