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.

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

An application for first-principles calculation based on the all-electron method. This application implements not only normal electronic state calculation (band calculation) but also a quasi-particle GW method for self-consistent (or one-shot) calculation of excitation spectrum and quasi-particle band. Combining with dynamical mean-field theory, self-consistent calculation including many-body effect can also be performed.

WannierTools

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

WannierTools is an open-source software package for investigation of novel topological materials. This code works in the tight-binding framework, which can be generated by another software package Wannier90. Users can perform calculations of the Wilson loop, positions of Weyl/Dirac points, nodal line structures, andthe Berry phase around a closed momentum loop and Berry curvature in a part of the Brillouin zone.

Z2Pack

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

Analytical tool to calculate the Z2 topological number or Chern number from given band structures, which are derived from first-principles calculations or tight-binding Hamiltonians. The topological numbers are calculated from the evolution of Wannier charge center and this method is applicable to the systems without inversion symmetries.
