Parallel Fock matrix construction algorithm for molecular orbital (MO) calculation specific computer (Figure 1) has been developed. MO-specific computer consists of massive custom processors to calculate two-electron integrals on the EHPC platform system (Figure 2), which have layered architecture (Figure 3). In order to obtain high parallelization efficiency for Fock matrix construction (Figure 5) on the layered architecture, multi-level dynamic load balance scheme (Figure 6) is adopted to get better load balance and to localize communications within a tree structure of Tree-Comm network API. Parallelized Fock matrix construction routine was implemented into GAMESS ab initio program on EHPC platform system, which uses SH4 processor instead of special purpose LSI. Benchmark result on 63 worker SH4 processor system shows extremely high parallelization efficiency (Table 1, Figure 8) on the platform system.
