OCTA is an integrated simulation system for soft materials developed by the joint project of industry and academia funded by Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry(METI), Japan. OCTA consists of four simulation engines named COGNAC(Molecular dynamics simulation), PASTA(rheology simulation), SUSHI(mean field theory), MUFFIN(continuum theory) and a simulation platform (GOURMET).
An open-source application of semi-empirical/ab-initio quantum chemical calculation that comes under an academic license. It performs various quantum chemical calculations based on Hartree-Fock theory, density functional theory, and configuration interaction theory, yielding electronic states and enabling structure optimization and molecular spectrum analysis. Molecular dynamics calculation based on the QM/MM method is also possible by using this software in combination with GROMACS.
An open-source application for first-principles calculation based on pseudo- potential and real-space basis. It performs electronic-state calculation such as band calculation of solids and structure optimization for a variety of physical systems. The method of time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) is implemented, which allows simulation of dynamical phenomena with real-time evolution of electronic states, such as chemical reaction and electronic response to time-dependent external fields. Comes with detailed tutorials and comprehensive manuals.
An open-source application for simulation of one-dimensional interacting electron models based on a tensor product wavefunction method. This application supports not only electronic models but also spin and bosonic models, and can evaluate various physical quantities for ground states and low-lying excited states. This application also supports time evolution, and can treat models with long-range interactions.
An open-source application for first-principles calculation utilizing pseudo-potentials and plane-wave basis sets. This application is capable of performing electronic structure calculations of a wide range of physical systems such as crystals and surfaces/interfaces. It supports structure relaxation, phonon-dispersion calculation, and molecular dynamics simulation, and can deal with systems with the spin-orbit interaction.
An application for first-principles calculation based on the order-N method. This application can perform electronic-state calculation and band calculation for various physical systems. It supports the DFT+U method, the time-dependent DFT method, molecular dynamics, etc., and can also treat van der Waals forces and phonons. By using support applications, generation of input files, transformation between different file formats, and analysis of numerical results can be performed.
