Parallel computing in the undergraduate chemistry curriculum

COMP 157

Khamis Siam,, Department of Chemistry, Pittsburg State University, Pittsburg, KS 66762
We have built an in-house beowulf cluster of 16-processors and have installed computational chemistry software such as MPQC, ghemical, etc. We have been using these software packages for a few years and have introduced our students in the organic chemistry sequence and upper level courses including research to the use and implementation of paprallel processing in computational chemistry.

We will present some examples of student work and the sort of assignments we make in our organic and upper level courses which have helped our students deepen their understanding of chemistry and of the emerging field of computational chemistry.
