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 conda-forge channel and install HOOMD-blue:

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

If you have already installed hoomd in conda, you can upgrade to the latest version:

$ conda update --all

On clusters, use singularity containers or 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.
