D5.4 – Datasets made available for benchmarking and ML modelling

Pernal, Katarzyna; Casula, Michele; Rupp, Matthias; Hapka, Michal

This report documents the creation of four datasets for modelling and benchmarking computational methods. They are dedicated to further investigations of systems, which have been used for demonstrations in work package (WP) 5, i.e. hydrogen under pressure, protonated water hexamer and molecular interactions in excited-state organic dimers. The datasets have been developed in the groups of Michele Casula (CNRS), Matthias Rupp (LIST), Kasia Pernal (TUL), and Michal Hapka (University of Warsaw). ...Read more

D5.2 – Report on machine learning results delivered for water systems

Rupp, Matthias; Casula, Michele

The TREX EU Centre of Excellence investigates implementations of Quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) calculations optimized for exascale high-performance computing. These calculations are high-accuracy quantum-chemical and materials simulations that are inherently parallelizable and computationally demanding. Thus, they are uniquely positioned to utilize and explore the upcoming exascale supercomputer architectures. TREX focuses on the development and promotion of an open-source, high-performance software platform of inter-operable flagship codes and exascale-ready libraries. ...Read more

D3.5 – Report on the reduction of numerical precision for computation and I/O

de Oliveira Castro, Pablo; Coppens, Francois; Delval, Aur´elien; Petit, Eric

This deliverable adresses the critical concern of floating-point accuracy in numerical simulations and computation-intensive codes, emphasizing the need for early detection and resolution of numerical bugs. It introduces Verificarlo-CI, a continuous integration workflow that monitors and optimizes numerical accuracy during code development within QMCkl. It also details the design of optimized versions of Sherman-Morrison-Woodbury (SMWB) kernels and show they achieve a good tradeoff between accuracy and performance. The report also explores the benefits of mixed precision in the CHAMP code. ...Read more
