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.
This application can produce input files of various applications for density functional theory (DFT) calculations via user-friendly parameter adjustment using three-dimensional computer graphics (3DCG) and graphical user interfaces (GUI). Input-file conversion between different applications is also possible.
An open-source application for first-principles molecular dynamics simulation based on pseudo-potential and plane-wave basis set. This application enables accurate molecular dynamics by density functional theory and Car-Parrinello method. It also supports structure optimization, Born-Oppenheimer molecular dynamics, path-integral molecular dynamics, calculation of response functions, the QM/MM method, and excited-state calculation.
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.
