The fragment molecular orbital (FMO) method can efficiently do quantum-mechanical calculations of large molecular systems by splitting the whole system into small fragments. The FMO program is distributed within quantum-chemical program suite GAMESS-US. FMO can provide various information regarding the structure and function of biopolymers, such as the interaction between a protein and a ligand.
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.
A pre/post-processing application for SIESTA and TranSIESTA. This application can calculate phonon frequencies, electron-phonon coupling, and contributions of inelastic scattering to the conductance. It also provides a Python interface for accessing data in the Hamiltonian output from SIESTA.
A package including patches and scripts for adding transition-state calculation to the first-principles calculation application VASP. This package adds new functions to VASP such as calculation of reaction paths, transition-state structures, and rate constants, as well as a set of scripts for setting up calculations and analyzing results. A program for the Bader analysis for atomic charge assignment is also included.
A support application for preparing input files of molecular dynamics calculation. This application supports manual input of atomic coordinates and bond informations, reading files of protain structure database, and editing data by graphical user interface. It also implements various functions such as addition of hydrogen atoms and composition of data. and can treat a large number of atoms using only a moderate memory cost.
Fortran codes for computing the specified k-th eigenvalue and eigenvector for generalized symmetric definite eigenvalue problems. Sylvester’s law of inertia is employed as the fundamental principle in computations, and the sparse direct linear solver (MUMPS) is used in the main routine. By inputting Hamiltonian and its overlap matrices, user can compute electron’s energy and its wave function in the specified k-th energy level.
An application for structure prediction based on the genetic algorithm. This application can predict the structure and composition of stable phase of crystals, molecules, atomic clusters, and so on by using first-principles calculation and molecular dynamics. This application implements interfaces with various programs such as VASP, LAMMPS, MOPAC, GULP, JDFTx, etc, and runs efficiently on parallel computing architectures.
Fitting data to a scaling law of critical phenomena, we automatically estimate critical point and indices. Since Bayesian method is flexible, we can use all data in a critical region.
A program for generating maximally-localized Wannier functions from results of first-principles calculation. This program supports Quantum Espresso, abinit, SIESTA, FLEUR, Wien2k, and VASP. It can also calculate electrical conductivity and material properties related to the berry phase from the obtained MLWFs.
An application for structure prediction based on the evolutionary algorithm. From an input of the atomic position in a unit cell and possible elements at each atomic position, this application predicts the stable structure and composition from the first-principles calculation and molecular dynamics in combination with the evolutionary algorithm. This application is written in Python, and uses Quantum ESPRESSO and GULP as an external program.
