Abstract The LCAP (loosely coupled array of processors) parallel processing systems developed at IBM Kingston have been employed in the simulation of Brownian dynamics on ring polymers. Significant speedups over the serial version of the FORTRAN code have been obtained by using bulk shared memories to expedite information passing between the attached array processors. In this manner we have been able to obtain data for chains with 128 and 256 units. Data on these larger chains indicate that the radius of gyration follows the predicted power law.
