SpM

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

A sparse-modeling tool for computing the spectral function from the imaginary-time Green function. It removes statistical errors in quantum Monte Carlo data, and performs a stable analytical continuation. The obtained spectral function fulfills the non-negativity and the sum rule. The computation is fast and free from tuning parameters.

Superconducting Toolkit (sctk)

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

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.
