Methodology Density functional theory methods (LDA, LSDA, GGA, hybrid), ultra-soft pseudo potential method and plane wave basis, diagonalization of repeated wave functions, ESM method (by Otani and Sugino), and maximally localized Wannier functions.
Parallelization Parallel computing by MPI and OpenMP is supported. Calculation of hybrid functionals by GPGPU is supported.

The application’s greatest appeal

Good parallelization efficiency through the use of OpenMP, MPI, and GPU. Hybrid functional supports GPGPU. A GUI-based input and output support tool (TAPIOCA) can be used. Visualization is done using OpenDX. Japanese user manual is available.
