We present an implementation of the improved staggered quark action lattice QCD computation designed for execution on a GPU cluster. The parallelization strategy is based on dividing the space-time lattice along the time dimension and distributing the sub-lattices among the GPU cluster nodes. We provide a mixed-precision floating-point GPU implementation of… (More)
—We present a CUDA C implementation of the Conjugate Gradient (CG) and multi-mass CG solver from the MILC quantum chromodynamics package to speedup improved staggered quarks computations on NVIDIA GPUs. The implementation is built on the QUDA package from Boston University.
We report on the calculation by the MILC Collaboration of the electromagnetic effects on kaon and pion masses. These masses are computed in QCD with dynamical (asqtad staggered) quarks plus quenched photons at three lattice spacings varying from 0.12 to 0.06 fm. The masses are fit to staggered chiral perturbation theory with NLO electromagnetic terms, as… (More)
Electromagnetic splittings of charged and neutral mesons from lattice QCD We calculated the electromagnetic splittings of charged and neutral pseudoscalar mesons, and the violation of Dashen's theorem. The meson masses are calculated with Lattice QCD using the MILC ensembles. U (1) gauge fields are generated independently. The computationally intensive part… (More)
We present the results of high-statistics calculations of correlation functions generated with single-baryon interpolating operators on an ensemble of dynamical anisotropic gauge-field configurations generated by the Hadron Spectrum Collaboration using a tadpole-improved clover fermion action and Symanzik-improved gauge action. A total of 292, 500 sets of… (More)
Road transport is one of the main inland transport modes providing flexible house to house services for the people all over the world Control of road traffic flows in urban areas in intersections are modelled in this article. Cost of CO<sub>2</sub>, CO, CH, NO<sub>x</sub>, PM and value of travel time had been used by the authors in order to estimate the… (More)
