#### First-Principles Molecular Dynamics

This scalable first-principles MD algorithm with O(N) complexity and controllable accuracy is capable of simulating systems that were previously impossible with such accuracy.

#### High-Order Finite Volume Methods

High-resolution finite volume methods are being developed for solving problems in complex phase space geometries, motivated by kinetic models of fusion plasmas.

#### Qbox

LLNL’s version of Qbox, a first-principles molecular dynamics code, will let researchers accurately calculate bigger systems on supercomputers.

#### Robust verification of control system enables NIF software updates

NIF Computing deploys regular updates to its computer control systems to ensure NIF continues to achieve ignition.

#### Meeting of the minds: advanced math for the exascale era

Hosted at LLNL, the Center for Efficient Exascale Discretizations’ annual event featured breakout discussions, more than two dozen speakers, and an evening of bocce ball.

#### Lab scientists and engineers garner three awards for top inventions in R&D 100 competition

With this year’s results, the Lab has now collected a total of 179 R&D 100 awards since 1978. The awards will be showcased at the 61st R&D 100 black-tie awards gala on Nov. 16 in San Diego.
