Abstract:   The Supercomputer K has been developed to achieve 10 PFLOPS using LINPACK benchmark test based on original design in Japan and it became the world fastest in 2011. The other challenge is to develop application codes with highly effective performance on K to demonstrate K’s performance. We started ISLiM (Integrated Simulation for Living Matter) project in 2006 as one of two grand challenges in the K project for this purpose. We have developed 31 application codes from molecular scale simulation, cell scale one to organ/body scale one as well as data analysis and brain/nerve system simulation. Top three effective performance among them are ZZ-EFSI: structure-fluid coupling code, cppmd: molecular dynamics code and UT-Heart: human heart simulater, which achieve 4.5, 3.8 and 2.9 PFLOPS using full system of K computer. 13 codes shows good scalability over 10,000 nodes. Some codes have already produced sufficient data to discover new scientific findings.
