Brownian dynamics (BD) simulation is method for studying biomolecules, ions, and nanomaterials that balances detail with computational efficiency.

ARBD supports tabulated non-bonded and bonded interactions between BD particles that can also be influenced by grid-specified potentials. Uniquely, ARBD also allows grid-specified densities and potentials to be associated with rigid body particles that rotate and translate to represent larger molecules. Most importantly, the code is designed to run quickly on modern NVIDIA GPUs.
