I'm investigating Earth materials via computational method.
I usually use some high-performance computors loading dual Xeon CPU(approx 3.0 GHz and 12 to 16 cores for each machine).
Sometimes I use supercomputer "K-computer".
I mainly use Force Field(clacical)-MD, Molecular Orbital, and Density Functional Theory calculations.
