DeePMD-kit

  • Level of openness 3 ★★★
  • Document quality 2 ★★☆

Python/C++ based software package that employs deep learning techniques for construction of interatomic potentials. It implements the Deep Potential, which defines atomic environment descriptors with respect to a local reference frame. The output of many first-principles and molecular dynamics applications can be used as training data, and the trained potentials can be used for molecular dynamics calculations using LAMMPS and path integral molecular dynamics calculations using i-PI.

QUIP

  • Level of openness 3 ★★★
  • Document quality 2 ★★☆

A collection of software tools for molecular dynamics calculations. Various interatomic potentials and tight binding models are implemented, and numerous external applications can be invoked. It also supports training and evaluation of GAP (Gaussian Approximation Potential), which is a form of machine learning potential.

NequIP

  • Level of openness 3 ★★★
  • Document quality 2 ★★☆

Open source software for building and using machine learning potentials based on E(3)-equivariant graph neural networks, which can be trained on output files of simulation codes that can be read by ASE. Molecular dynamics calculations with LAMMPS can be performed using the trained potentials.

Allegro

  • Level of openness 3 ★★★
  • Document quality 2 ★★☆

Open source software for constructing the Allegro potential model based on E(3)-equivariant graph neural networks and using the potential model for molecular dynamics simulations. The code depends on NequIP and can be run in a similar manner. Allegro scales better than NequIP since it doesn’t rely on message passing and the architecture is strictly local with respect to atom-wise environments.

pacemaker

  • Level of openness 3 ★★★
  • Document quality 2 ★★☆

Software tool for constructing interatomic potentials based on nonlinear atomic cluster expansion. It requires the user to either prepare a fitting dataset based on pandas and ASE, or it can automatically extract data from VASP calculation results. The obtained potentials can be used for molecular dynamics simulations using LAMMPS, and it also provides the capability to calculate extrapolation grades for on-the-fly active learning.
