Materials and devices with microstructures on the nanometer scale are revolutionizing technology, but until recently simulation at this scale has been problematic. Developments in parallel computing are now allowing atomistic simulation using multiresolution algorithms, such as fast multipole methods. With these algorithms, researchers may soon be able to simulate applications up to one billion atoms.
