ALPSCore/CT-HYB

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

An open-source impurity solver based on the quantum Monte Carlo method. Thermal equilibrium states of interacting impurity systems, such as the impurity Anderson model, can be evaluated by the continuous-time hybridization-expansion quantum Monte Carlo method. It can be used as a solver of effective impurity models derived from the dynamical mean-field theory (DMFT) and can deal with multi-orbital models. This package supports parallel computation by MPI and is developed based on the ALPSCore library.

SPRKKR

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

A open-source application of first-principles calculation for the electronic structure, using the KKR method, a variant of Green’s function method. It is based on the density functional theory and is applicable to crystals and surfaces. The coherent potential approximation (CPA) is adopted, so it can handle not only periodic systems, but also disordered alloys. It can also handle spin-orbit interaction and non-collinear magnetism.
