Abstract

Molecular Dynamics usually running on MPI or OpenMP, now we let it running on MapReduce. We think it's a good idea.

Intellectual Merit

write some simple programms of molecular dynamics that could utilize Hadoop cluster, just for the aim of research

Broader Impacts

broaden the application area of Hadoop. we know Hadoop is not expert in scientific computing application, but we can try our best to get better results.

Scale of Use

a few VMs for an experiment
