Tinker-HP is a CPU based, double precision, MPI massively parallel package dedicated to long polarizable molecular dynamics simulations and to polarizable QM/MM. Tinker-HP is an evolution of the popular Tinker package that conserves it simplicity of use but brings new capabilities allowing performing very long molecular dynamics simulations on modern supercomputers that use thousands of cores. The Tinker-HP approach offers various strategies using domain decomposition techniques for periodic boundary conditions in the framework of the (n)log(n) Smooth Particle Mesh Ewald. Tinker-HP proposes a high performance scalable computing environment for polarizable (AMOEBA, Amberpol...) and classical (Amber, Charmm, OPLS...) force fields giving access to large systems up to millions of atoms. It can be used on supercomputers as well as on lab clusters.

Tinker-HP 1.2 is available free of charge for ALL Academic Institutions, National Laboratories and supercomputer centers through the global Tinker license ( Non-academic entities (e.g., companies, for profit organizations) should contact the managing universities (see license).
