RESPACK is a first-principles calculation software for evaluating the interaction parameters of materials. It is able to calculate the maximally localized Wannier functions, the RPA response functions, and frequency-dependent electronic interaction parameters. RESPACK receives its input data from a band calculation using norm-conserving pseudopotentials with plane-wave basis sets. Utilities which convert a result of xTAPP or Quantum ESPRESSO to an input for RESPACK are prepared. The software has been used successfully for a wide range of materials such as metals, semiconductors, transition-metal compounds, and organic compounds. It supports OpenMP / MPI parallelization.
RSDFT is an ab-initio program with the real-space difference method and a pseudo-potential method. Using density functional theory (DFT), this calculates electronic states in a vast range of physical systems: crystals, interfaces, molecules, etc. RSDFT is suitable for highly parallel computing because it does not need the fast Fourier transformation. By using the K-computer, this program can calculate the electronic states of around 100,000 atoms. The Gordon Bell Prize for Peak-Performance was awarded to RSDFT in 2011.
RSPACE is a first-principles code package based on a real-space finite-difference pseudo-potential method. It computes electronic states with high-speed and high precision in aperiodic systems of surfaces, solid interfaces, clusters, nanostructures, and so forth. It provides large-scale computing for semiconductor devices of nanostructure surface and interface reactions, calculation of transport properties in semi-infinite boundary conditions, and a massively parallel computing using the space partitioning method.
An open-source application for the first-principles calculation based on the all-electron method with localized bases. By adopting the full-potential LMTO method, high-speed electronic state calculation can be performed with a less number of bases compared with the standard all-electron method. There is no restriction on symmetries as in the LMTO-ASA method, and spin polarization and spin-orbit interaction can also be treated.

A open-source application of first-principles calculation for the electronic structure, using the KKR method, a variant of Green’s function method. It is based on the density functional theory and is applicable to crystals and surfaces. The coherent potential approximation (CPA) is adopted, so it can handle not only periodic systems, but also disordered alloys. It can also handle spin-orbit interaction and non-collinear magnetism.
STATE is a first-principles plane-wave pseudo-potential code. It provides electronic state calculations and molecular dynamics simulations. This code is suitable for simulating chemical reactions at solid surfaces and solid–liquid interfaces, i.e., It is able to investigate reaction paths and activation barriers of chemical processes at interfaces. It can also include Van der Waals corrections to conventional density functional theory.
An open-source application for evaluating superconducting gaps from resutls of the first-principles calculation by Quantum ESPRESSO. By calculating electron-phonon interaction and screened Coulomb interaction from the first-principles calculation, superconducting gaps can be obtained from the gap equation. Quasiparticle densities of states and ultrasonic attenuation rates can also be calculated.
