1305.5615 (Thomas Vogel et al.)

A generic, hierarchical framework for massively parallel Wang-Landau

Thomas Vogel, Ying Wai Li, Thomas Wüst, David P. Landau
We introduce a parallel Wang-Landau method based on the replica-exchange framework for Monte Carlo simulations. To demonstrate its advantages and general applicability for simulations of complex systems, we apply it to different spin models including spin glasses, the Ising model and the Potts model, lattice protein adsorption, and the self-assembly process in amphiphilic solutions. Without loss of accuracy, the method gives significant speed-up and potentially scales up to petaflop machines.
