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.
Parsec is a DFT program package based on real space basis and norm-conserving pseudopotential.
An open-source application for visualization developed for input and output of GAMESS. This application supports various types of input formats such as GAMESS, XYZ, MolDel, pdb, and CML as well as input by GUI and the Z-matrix format. It can visualize molecular orbitals, electron densities, electrostatic potentials, and normal modes, and can output results into various formats.
An application for prediction of stable and metastable structures from a chemical composition. For prediction of structures, this application combines the first-principles calculation by external packages (VASP, GULP, siesta, Quantum Espresso, STM4, CP2k, etc.) with various efficient algorithms such as the evolutionary algorithm.
It can be applied to prediction of, e.g., structure of crystals under extreme pressure, nanoparticles, and surface reconstruction.
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.
An application for semi-empirical quantum chemistry calculation. Special emphasis is placed on molecular dynamics simulations, and is able to run efficiently on large-scale cluster computer systems using OpenMP/MPI hybrid parallelism. The code is still under development, but the source code is distributed freely under the GPL license.
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.
A python library for pre- and post-processing of first-principles electronic structure calculations. As a pre-processing tool, it can automatically generate k-point pathways for first-principles calculations of band structures based on the crystal symmetry. It can also post-process first-principles calculation results to generate band structure and density of states plots with atomic species and orbital contributions, or visualize spin textures and Fermi surfaces. It also provides a functionality for band unfolding.
An application for prediction of stable and metastable structures from a chemical composition. This application applies the revolutionary algorithm to structure prediction by using various external energy calculators (VASP, GULP, Quantum Espresso, CASTEP).
CONQUEST is a linear-scaling DFT (Density Functional Theory) code based on the density matrix minimization method. Since its computational cost, for both memory and computational costs, is only proportional to the number of atoms N of the target systems, the code can employ structure optimization or molecular dynamics on very large-scale systems, including more than hundreds of thousands of atoms. It also has high parallel efficiency and is suitable for massively parallel calculations.
