As a method of quantum simulation for large systems with surfaces and inhomogenieties, the density functional molecular dynamics is applied to the hydrogen plasma in the domain of liquid metallic hydrogen and the performance of a PC cluster is measured. Usefulness of relatively small scale PC cluter is shown even without much efforts in tuning the programs for parallel computation.
