This paper describes briefly the physical methods behind our Molecular Dynamics simulations, and the projects carried out on Connection Machine supercomputers. The algorithms are discussed, and the implementation on parallel computers is described. Performance measurements obtained on CM-200 and CM-5 are reported.
