The KITPC 2009 MILC Code Tutorial
This tutorial provides an introduction to the MILC code for lattice
QCD calculations. It also provides a brief introduction to the ILDG.
It is intended for researchers who are already familiar with the
terminology of lattice gauge simulations and with standard Unix
operations and who are interested in using the MILC code. There are
two workshop presentations and two tutorial sessons.
- MILC Code Basics This
tutorial session introduces the MILC code, some of its input
parameters, some of the Makefile options, and some compilation
variations. Finally it shows how to download and unpack it.
- MILC Code with ILDG This
tutorial session shows how to browse the ILDG for gauge field
configuration files, how to link the MILC code with SciDAC/C
packages so you can read an ILDG lattice, and how to use the MILC
code to do a simple calculation using an ILDG lattice.
