FMO in GAMESS

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

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.

FPLO

  • Level of openness 0 ☆☆☆
  • Document quality 2 ★★☆

An application for first-principles calculation based on the all-electron method with localized bases. Compared with the standard all-electron method (the full-potential LAPW method), this application uses a less number of bases keeping accuracy of calculation, and realize high-speed electronic state calculation by the density functional method. This application also supports calculation for disordered structures by coherent potential approximation (CPA), relativistic effect, and the LSDA+U method.
