An application for prediction of stable and metastable structures from a chemical composition. This application applies particle swarm optimization to predict material structures from results of the first-principles calculation by external packages (VASP, CASTEP, Quantum Espresso, GULP, SIESTA, CP2k). It has been applied to predict not only three-dimensional crystal structures, but also those of clusters and surfaces.
CCCM is a high-order CCM (coupled cluster method) code for lattice spin systems. It is possible to obtain the ground state and its energy of quantum spin systems in two or three dimensions.
CrySPY is a crystal structure prediction tool by utilizing first-principles calculations and a classical MD program. Only by inputting chemical composition, crystal structures can be automatically generated and searched. In ver. 0.6.1, random search, Bayesian optimization, and LAQA are available as searching algorithms. CrySPY is interfaced with VASP, Quantum ESPRESSO, and LAMMPS.
An open-source application for visualization of many-particle systems. With simple operation by graphical user interface (GUI) or by command line, this application can visualize particle positions obtained from molecular dynamics simulation as well as three-dimensional scalar quantities such as potential energies. It supports various display options on kinds and shapes of particles, and can also visualize bond formation between particles.
GPU library for pdgemm and pzgemm, which are functions of matrix-matrix operations in ScaLAPACK.
A general-purpose application for molecular dynamics simulation equipped with many tools. This package was originally developed for biomolecules (peptides, proteins, nuclear acids, etc.), and the current version can perform molecular dynamics simulation for various systems such as solutions, crystals, membranes, and so on. It supports several sampling methods and calculation of free energy. It also supports various computing environments including both serial and parallel computers.
A payware for modeling and visualizing molecules. This software includes a standard editor, ChemDraw, and can perform modeling from chemical structural formula. It implements structure optimization and molecular dynamics by molecular mechanics, and provides useful GUIs for MOPAC, Jaguar, GAMESS, and Gaussian. It can also perform spectroscopy analysis. It is included in high-end packages such as ChemBioOffice and ChemOffice.
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.
CIF2Cell is a tool to generate a crystal structure part of an input file of first-principles calculation software from crystal structure data file in CIF format. It supports various first-principles calculation codes such as ABINIT, Quantum Espresso, and VASP.
An open-source application for electronic structure calculation based on the diffusion Monte Carlo method. By using output of other packages of first-principles quantum-chemical calculation, this package performs electronic structure calculation with high accuracy. Although its computational cost is high, various physical quantities can be evaluated very accurately. It implements an efficient parallelization algorithm, and supports massively parallel computing.
