The model of distributed calculators makes it possible a parallel calculation of the correlated N-particle system with a complex multi-particle interaction (long-range ionic and short-range repulsive, two- and three-particle covalent interactions) with MPI and CUDA technologies. The computational model is based on the mathematical model of heterogeneous descriptors developed by the authors, that allows shift the focus from the describing the physical interactions in the system to the description of data flow between the descriptors. The results of computer experiments, which compare the time of the simulation on the cluster of 16 calculators and GPU NVIDIA are given. The model of distributed calculators was being tested with the software package of RIS «MD-SLAG-MELT»
The possibilities of computer experiments performed with the MDSLAGMELT v. 10.0 information-research system (IRS) with remote access are described. The main classes of mathematical models and methods and the sets of properties obtained in computer experiments are considered. An information model is developed for an oxide melt to study multidimensional composition–temperature–property–structure relations. A nanostructural model based on generalized graph network descriptors is considered in detail. The results of simulating the structure-sensitive properties of the SiO2–Na2O system using IRS are presented.
The paper provides a number of proposed draft operational guidelines for technology measurement and includes a number of tentative technology definitions to be used for statistical purposes, principles for identification and classification of potentially growing technology areas, suggestions on the survey strategies and indicators. These are the key components of an internationally harmonized framework for collecting and interpreting technology data that would need to be further developed through a broader consultation process. A summary of definitions of technology already available in OECD manuals and the stocktaking results are provided in the Annex section.
