2 Outline Overview of forces in molecular dynamics
Data structures and methodology PME for long distance electrostatic interactions Steps involved in PME calculations Performance and profiling of large membranes Related work and conclusions

3 Classical Forces Classical Forces Non-Bonded Bonded Bonds Dihedrals
Van der Waals Electrostatic Angles Reaction Field (RF) PME

4 Bond Interactions Bond forces: acts only within pairs of molecules
Angle forces: acts only within a triad of atoms Torsion or dihedral forces: acts only within quartet of atoms

5 Non-bond Interactions: Van der Waals Potential
Van der Waals or Lennard-Jones potential: Decays rapidly with distance A cutoff of ~10A, accurately captures the effect of the Van der Waals potential

6 Non-Bond Interactions: Electrostatic Potential
Coulomb Potential: inverse square law Decays as 1/r with distance Since 1/r decays rather slowly, the potential can act over long distances Choosing a cutoff for electrostatic force/potential causes computational errors and inaccuracy Our solutions to sum long distance electrostatic forces: Reaction Force Field (RF) Ewald summation / Particle Mesh Ewald (PME)

7 GPU Implementation: Data Structures
A single thread is assigned to each atom For each atom a set of lists is maintained: Bond list stores list of bonds the atom belongs to Angle list stores list of angles the atom belongs to Dihedral list stores list of dihedrals the atom belongs to Nonbond list stores non-bond interactions with atoms within cutoff Nonbond list for q5: q2, r2 q6, r6 q8, r8 q9, r9 q1 q2 q3 q9 q7 q8 q5 q6 q4

8 MD Simulation MD simulations are iterative executions of MD steps
Each iteration computes forces on each particle due to: Bonds – Bond List Angles – Angle List Dihedrals – Dihedral List Electrostatic Van der Waals If Ewald summation is used an additional component is added: Long distance interaction using PME method Bond, angle, and dihedral lists are unchanged for each atom throughout the simulation Nonbond list is updated based on a cutoff buffer - Nonbond List

9 Ways to Update Nonbond List
Global neighbor list Each thread can iterate through the global list of atoms to build the nonbond list Cell-based neighbor list Divide the domain into equal cells of size = cutoff Search only in current cell and adjacent cells for neighboring atoms There are 26 adjacent cells and 1 current cell in 3-dimensions Cell-based list is computationally very efficient but also needs regular cell updates

10 Cell Updates Single thread manages a single or a set of cells
Each cell is managed by a list of atoms in the cell called ‘CellList’ When an atom ‘i’ moves from Cell A to Cell B, the thread responsible for Cell A updates the list of Cell B via thread safe integer atomic intrinsics Invalid atoms are removed from the cell lists by the ‘CellClean’ kernel

11 Periodic Boundary Condition
q1 q2 q3 q9 q7 q8 q5 q6 q4 q1 q2 q3 q9 q7 q8 q5 q6 q4 q1 q2 q3 q9 q7 q8 q5 q6 q4 Cell of interest of edge vectors ax, ay Region of influence q1 q2 q3 q9 q7 q8 q5 q6 q4 q1 q2 q3 q9 q7 q8 q5 q6 q4 q1 q2 q3 q9 q7 q8 q5 q6 q4 q1 q2 q3 q9 q7 q8 q5 q6 q4 q1 q2 q3 q9 q7 q8 q5 q6 q4 q1 q2 q3 q9 q7 q8 q5 q6 q4 Where is ax and ay?

12 Reaction Force Field Any molecule is surrounded by spherical cavity of finite radius Within the radius, electrostatic interactions are calculated explicitly Outside the cavity, the system is treaded as a dielectric continuum This model allows the replacement of the infinite Coulomb sum by a finite sum plus the reaction filed where the second terms is the reaction filed correction and Rc is the radius of the cavity Coulomb potential

13 Ewald Summation Method (I)
Proposed by Paul Peter Ewald in 1921 for crystallographic systems Has found applications in molecular, astrophysical and crystallographic systems Used to sum inverse distance potential over long distance efficiently – e.g., Gravity and Coulomb Potential. Was started to be used in the late 70s for numerical simulations O(NlogN) instead of O(NxN)

14 Ewald Summation Method
Three contributions to the total energy, depending on the distance of the interaction: Direct space (Edir) Reciprocal space (Erec) Self energy (Eself )

15 Ewald Summation Method (II)
Divide interactions into short range (Direct Space) and long range (Reciprocal Space) Short Range Direct space using Nonbond List Long Range Fourier Space V - Volume of the simulation region S(m) – Structure parameters

16 Convolution yields potential at grid points
Steps in SMPE Put charges on grids 1 Multiply with structure constants 3 FFT of charge grid 2 FFT back 4 Compute force on atom i by calculating Convolution yields potential at grid points which have to be summed 5 Charge spreading Fourier transform Multiplication with structure constants Summation for force and energy

17 Charge Spreading Each charge is spread on a 4x4x4 = 64 grid points in 3-D Grid spacing 1 A by a cardinal B-Spline of order 4 Create a 3 dimensional Charge Matrix “Q”. Mesh-based charge density Approximation by sum of charges at each grid point Multiple charges can influence a single lattice point Essman et al., J. Chem. Phys. 1995 Charges xi yi zi: position of the ith charge; k1 k2 k3: index of the lattice point

18 Cardinal B-Spline of Order 4
B-Spline has a region of influence of 4 units Each unit = 1A During charge spreading B-Spline has an impact on the neighboring 4x4x4 cells in 3 dimensions

19 CPU vs. GPU Charge Spreading
Charge Spreading by a cardinal B-Spline of order 4: CPU implementation is straightforward Time computation: Natoms x 4 x 4 x 4 time steps GPU implementation is hard to parallelize Can lead to racing conditions - need floating point atomic writes Current version of CUDA supports atomic writes for integers only Charges need to be converted to fixed point in order to utilize the functionality Unit cell charges

20 CPU vs. GPU Charge Spreading
CPU spreading of charges: GPU gathering of charges by a cardinal B-Spline of order 4: Each thread is assigned to a lattice point Charge spreading on GPU can be parallelized easily by the grid points instead of the atoms Each thread works on a single or a set of grid points Need O(ax*ay*az) threads, with each thread parsing through all the atoms within 4x4x4 neighborhood –> O(N)

21 GPU Charge Spreading (I)
Each lattice point maintains a list of atoms within 4x4x4 neighborhood for charge gathering 1 2 Effect of charges 1, 2, 3 are gathered at the lattice point 3 Neighbor list of point: q1, r1 q2, r2 q3, r3

22 GPU Charge Spreading (II)
When a charge moves, several lattice points need to be updated The charge is added to the neighbor list of lattice points in dark gray The charge is removed from the neighbor list of lattice points in light gray Lattice points in white are not affected Since there are equal number of light gray and dark gray lattice points, a 1-to-1 mapping was devised 2’ 2 The threads for lattice points in light gray update the list of lattice points in dark gray in a 1-to-1 fashion

23 GPU Charge Spreading (III)
1 2’ 1’ 2 When a single lattice point is updated by multiple threads, thread safe integer atomic intrinsics are used to update the cell lists

24 Fast Fourier Transform
CUFFT provides library functions to compute FFT and inverse FFT 3D FFT implemented with series of 1D FFTs and transpositions CUFFTExec can be optimized by choosing proper FFT dimensions Power of 2

25 Scientific Challenge One-third of the human genome is composed of membrane-bound proteins Pharmaceuticals target membrane-bound protein receptors e.g., G-protein coupled receptors Importance of systems to human health and understanding of dysfunction State-of-the-art simulations only consider small regions (or patches) of physiological membranes Heterogeneity of the membrane spans length scales much larger than included in these smaller model systems.
