Algorithm for the replica redistribution in the implementation of parallel annealing method on the hybrid supercomputer architecture

math. arxive. Cornell University, 2020. No. 2006.00561.
The parallel annealing method is one of the promising approaches for large scale simulations as potentially scalable on any parallel architecture. We present an implementation of the algorithm on the hybrid program architecture combining CUDA and MPI. The problem is to keep all general-purpose graphics processing unit devices as busy as possible redistributing replicas and to do that efficiently. We provide details of the testing on Intel Skylake/Nvidia V100 based hardware running in parallel more than two million replicas of the Ising model sample. The results are quite optimistic because the acceleration grows toward the perfect line with the growing complexity of the simulated system.
