Abstract: The UNEDF project was a large-scale collaborative effort that applied high-performance computing to the nuclear quantum many-body problem. UNEDF demonstrated that close associations among nuclear physicists, mathematicians, and computer scientists can lead to novel physics outcomes built on algorithmic innovations and computational developments. This review showcases a wide range of UNEDF science results to illustrate this interplay.
Keywords: Nuclear many-body problem; Ab initio calculations; Configuration interaction; Coupled-cluster method; Density functional theory; Effective field theory; High-performance computing; Quantum Monte Carlo
Thanks: Support for the UNEDF and NUCLEI collaborations was provided through the SciDAC program funded by the U.S. Dept. of Energy (DOE), Office of Science, Advanced Scientific Computing Research and Nuclear Physics programs. This work was also supported by DOE Contract Nos. DE-FG02-96ER40963 (Univ. Tenn.), DE-AC52-07NA27344 (LLNL), DE-AC02-05CH11231 (LBNL), DE-AC05-00OR22725 (ORNL), DE-AC02-06CH11357 and DE-FC02-07ER41457 (ANL), DE-FC02-09ER41584 (Central Michigan Univ.), DE-FC02-09ER41582 (Iowa State Univ.), DE-FG02-87ER40371 (Iowa State Univ.), and DE-FC02-09ER41586 (Ohio State Univ.). This research used the computational resources of the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) at ORNL and Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) at ANL provided through the INCITE program. Computational resources were also provided by the National Institute for Computational Sciences (NICS) at ORNL, the Laboratory Computing Resource Center (LCRC) at ANL, and the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) at LBNL.
