BG@HEPlib library

ANL BG-HEP library is designed to run CPU-intensive HEP calculations on the BlueGene/Q supercomputer (Vesta/Mira) of Argonne Leadership Computing Facility. The main features of the BG@HEP library are:

  • Many packages have been redesigned removing ROOT, HBOOK and CERNLIB calls
  • Monte Carlo / NLO programs redesigned to use MPI for random seeds and outputs on multiple cores
  • The default output of event records is ProMC file format

The following HEP libraries are supported:

To setup the library, run this setup script:

source /home/chakanau/public/BG-HEP/

This will setup the above libraries. Each library has a “Makefile” which can be compiled and run a program on BlueGene/Q. Look at this “” to see location of each library.

A list of Monte Carlo simulations and NLO programs generated on BlueGene/Q (Vesta, ANL) is listed on the =HepSim= event repository.

You can download this package as BG-HEP.tgz**.


This research used resources of the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility at Argonne National Laboratory, which is supported by the Office of Science of the U.S. Department of Energy under contract DE-AC02-06CH11357.
