i-PI

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

i-PI is a universal force engine interface written in Python, designed to be used together with an ab-initio (or force-field based) evaluation of the interactions between the atoms. This application includes a large number of sophisticated methods such as replica exchange molecular dynamics (REMD) and path integral molecular dynamics (PIMD). Inter-atomic forces can be computed by using external codes such as CP2K, Quantum ESPRESSO and LAMMPS.
