CASINO

  • Level of openness 3 ★★★
  • Document quality 1 ★☆☆

An open-source application for electronic structure calculation based on the diffusion Monte Carlo method. By using output of other packages of first-principles quantum-chemical calculation, this package performs electronic structure calculation with high accuracy. Although its computational cost is high, various physical quantities can be evaluated very accurately. It implements an efficient parallelization algorithm, and supports massively parallel computing.

LmtART

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

An open-source application for all-electron first-principles calculation based on augmented plane-wave basis. It performs electronic-state calculation such as band calculation of solids and structure optimization. The all-electron method, which treats core electrons explicitly, improves accuracy compared with pseudo-potential methods. This package can also treat strong electronic correlations by combining electronic-state calculation with the dynamical mean-field approximation.

RSDFT

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

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.

PHASE

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

An electronic structure calculation program based on the density functional theory and the pseudo potential scheme with a plane wave basis set. This is a powerful tool to predict the physical properties of unknown materials and to simulate experimental results such as STM and EELS. This also enables users to perform long time molecular dynamics simulations and to analyze chemical reaction processes. This program is available on a wide variety of computers from single-core PCs to massive parallel computers like K computer. The whole source code is open to public.

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.

SHRY

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

A python tool for generating symmetry-inequivalent supercell structures from a CIF file containing site occupancy information. SHRY can be used as a command-line tool as well as a module in a python script.

RESPACK

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

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.
