LAMMPS-OCL is an experimental version of the LAMMPS molecular dynamics code
cloned from the LAMMPS project git repository on 22 March 2011.

The purpose of this version is to provide a testbed for experimenting
with OpenCL modifications to allow the simulations to run on modern
multi-core (CPU) and many-core (GPU) devices using OpenCL.

This version of LAMMPS is *NOT* a subsititute for the production code
available from the LAMMPS project website:

LAMMPS-OCL has been tested on the following graphics cards:
AMD Radeon HD 6970
AMD/ATI FirePro V8800
NVIDIA Tesla C2070

A white paper describing the initial investigation using this experimental
version of LAMMPS can be found here:

The modifications in LAMMPS-OCL were developed by Brown Deer Technology, LLC.

LAMMPS-OCL presently requires:
(1) an OpenCL implementation suitable for your system
(2) COPRTHR SDK v1.2 (pre-release) which may found on the "current" branch of
    the development (
The LAMMPS-OCL source code including all modifications is available under
the GPLv2 license of the original LAMMPS code.

The following information describes the original production code, with
