ATLAS is built upon over 20 years of academic research in the world most famous universities : UT at Austin, Washington University in the USA and Sorbonne University, CNRS and CNAM in France.
In the 80s the field of molecular simulation split into two groups:
One decided to simplify the laws of phyisics in order to be able to perform calculations with the available computing power.
We decided to stay as close to quantum physics as possible in order to perform the most accurate simulation possible, betting on the fact that the increase in computing power will eventually allow perfoming these complex calculations.
Today with the rise of GPU, cloud and exascale computing we provide both the most accurate and fastest calcuations
