About omegagene

“omegagene” is the name of the molecular dynamics (MD) simulation software. omegagene has several unique features, such as, the zero-multipole summation method and the virtual-system coupled multi-canonical MD method.

The current version of omegagene can perform:
  1. MD simulations on NVE ensemble
  2. MD simulations on NVT ensemble (The velocity rescaling, or Hoover-Evans thermostat)
  3. MD simulations on Multi-canonical ensemble, with the Virtual-system coupled McMD method.
  4. Applying constraints with SHAKE algorithm
  5. Calculations of electrostatic potentials based on the zero-dipole summation method.
  6. Calculations of pairwise potentials on GPGPU (powered by CUDA 7.0, Computer Capability 3.5 is required).


CELESTE is the code name for the collection of libraries that build omegagene
