WIEN2k

  • Level of openness 0 ☆☆☆
  • Document quality 3 ★★★

Program package for first-principles calculation based on all-electron calculation method and augmented plane-wave basis. This package performs electronic-state calculation such as band calculation of solids, structure optimization, first-principles molecular dynamics, and so on. All-electron method, which treats core electrons, improves accuracy in calculation compared with pseudo-potential method, and enables us to obtain chemical shifts related to core electrons. This payware can be used by making a contract with the developer.

Questaal

  • 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.

OpenMX

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

OpenMX is a first-principles software based on the pseudo-atomic localized basis functions. It calculates electronic structure rapidly for a wide range of materials including crystals, interfaces, liquids, etc. It speedily provides molecular dynamics simulation and structural optimization of large-scale systems and also implements a hybrid parallelism. It is able to deal with non-collinear magnetism and non-equilibrium Green’s function calculations for electrical conductions.

ALPS

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

ALPS is a numerical simulation library for strongly correlated systems such as magnetic materials or correlated electrons. It contains typicalsolvers for strongly correlated systems: Monte Carlo methods, exact diagonalization, the density matrix renormalization group, etc. It can be used to calculate heat capacities, susceptibilities, magnetization processes in interacting spin systems, the density of states in strongly correlated electrons, etc. A highly efficient scheduler for parallel computing is another improvement.
