[gmx-developers] Posit-enablement of GROMACS

Dear Devs:

I am trying to connect with the current developers/maintainers of the
GROMACS code. We have been working with a large international consortium of
computational scientists on a new number system, called posits, to replace
IEEE floating point with a high-performance reproducible tapered floating
point format with higher numerical accuracy.

One of our supercomputer center customers want to enable GROMACS with this
new number system, and I am looking for subject matter experts that we
should work with to enable GROMACS with the C++ posit arithmetic library
that has been developed for the posit-based hardware accelerators.

Looking forward to connecting with the computational kernel SMEs of GROMACS.

With warm regards,

Theodore Omtzigt
