Additional recommended knowledge
QMC@Home is a distributed computing project for the BOINC client aimed at further developing and testing Quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) for use in quantum chemistry. It is hosted by the University of Münster, Germany. QMC@Home allows volunteers from around the world to donate idle computer cycles to help calculate the energies and reactivity of molecules using Diffusion Monte Carlo.
The project began its Betatesting on 23 May 2006.
In order to get results from home computers the work is split into "workunits". The time it takes to complete a workunit depends on the size of the calculated system and the speed of the user's computer. The target time is between 4 and 48 hours on a 2400 MHz system.
For a list of current workunits, visit the project's website.
