Recent Developments with the Population Annealing Algorithm
Prof. Lev Shchur
Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics, Science Center in Chernogolovka, Russia

Population annealing algorithm designed for the simulations of the statistical mechanics systems with rugged free energy landscape. We report on the realization of the algorithm for the use on the hybrid computing architecture combining CPU and GPGPU. The algorithm is fully scalable. We report an application of the developed realization to several interesting problems. The algorithm can be applied to any system of statistical mechanics, described by partition function.
