TRIQS/DFT tools

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

An interface tool for combining first-principles calculation based on density functional theory (DFT) and TRIQS, the application for dynamical mean-field theory (DMFT). By combining Wien2k and TRIQS, self-consistent DFT+DMFT calculation can be realized by this tool. One-shot DFT+DMFT calculation using band structures obtained by other first-principles applications is also possible.

WannierTools

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

WannierTools is an open-source software package for investigation of novel topological materials. This code works in the tight-binding framework, which can be generated by another software package Wannier90. Users can perform calculations of the Wilson loop, positions of Weyl/Dirac points, nodal line structures, andthe Berry phase around a closed momentum loop and Berry curvature in a part of the Brillouin zone.

WEST

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

WEST is a package for calculating excited spectrum by using the one-shot GW method. Before calculating the excited spectrum, it is necessary to obtain the ground states from the DFT calculations (LDA/GGA/hybrid functional) by Quantum ESPRESSO. To reduce the numerical cost, WEST uses the algorithm that does not require the unoccupied bands. It is also possible to include the spin-orbit couplings and to perform the large-scale calculations at supercomputers. Installation and formats of input files are basically the same as those of Quantum ESPRESSO.

WIEN2k

  • Level of openness 0 ☆☆☆
  • Document quality 3 ★★★

Program package for first-principles calculation based on all-electron calculation method and augmented plane-wave basis. This package performs electronic-state calculation such as band calculation of solids, structure optimization, first-principles molecular dynamics, and so on. All-electron method, which treats core electrons, improves accuracy in calculation compared with pseudo-potential method, and enables us to obtain chemical shifts related to core electrons. This payware can be used by making a contract with the developer.
