# HOOMD-blue¶

Welcome to the reference documentation for HOOMD-blue!

The HOOMD examples and tutorials complement this documentation. Read the HOOMD-blue tutorial online

On laptops/workstations, you can install stable binaries with conda. If you haven’t already, download and install miniconda. Then add the glotzer channel and install HOOMD-blue:

$conda config --add channels glotzer$ conda install hoomd


\$ conda update --all


On clusters, compile HOOMD from source so that you are using the right MPI version to take advantage of the high performance network. Your cluster may also require a specific version of CUDA.
