Re: Single vs. Double precision

I was wondering about this as well - I noticed a compile time option (-DSHORTREALS) for single precision in common.h and tried it but never managed to make a working binary. And how about the new CUDA code in CVS, is that single or double precision? best regards, Floris ________________________________ From: Neelanjana Sengupta <> To: NAMD <> Sent: Monday, 19 January, 2009 11:27:27 Subject: namd-l: Single vs. Double precision Hello NAMD community, I gather from a previous conversation that the NAMD code uses double precision. However, can the code be compiled as a single precision version? And if so, has anybody compared results and found serious deviations between the single and double precision results for any system? Some information would be appreciated.
