 A short Performance Analysis of Abinit under different build environments

(presented in Chemnitz, Germany, Jan. 2006)


Abinit uses the Density Functional Theory (DFT) to calculate the electronic structure of atomic systems. The code can be build for sequential as well as parallel execution under shared or distributed memory environments. It is tested with the Athlon MP and Intel Xeon CPU architecture with different compilers and math libraries (see section 2 for details) trying to find out which combination of compiler/math library is performing best under which architecture.
