ALPS is a numerical simulation library for strongly correlated systems such as magnetic materials or correlated electrons. It contains typicalsolvers for strongly correlated systems: Monte Carlo methods, exact diagonalization, the density matrix renormalization group, etc. It can be used to calculate heat capacities, susceptibilities, magnetization processes in interacting spin systems, the density of states in strongly correlated electrons, etc. A highly efficient scheduler for parallel computing is another improvement.
Program package for molecular dynamics simulation. This package includes various material parameters such as peptides, proteins, nuclear acids, carbohydrates, ligands etc., and can perform molecular dynamics simulation of biological macromolecule and cells. This package consists of software for input preparation, simulation, and analysis of results, and is widely used in pharmacy and biological science.
AMULET is a collection of tools for a first principles calculation of physical properties of strongly correlated materials. It is based on density functional theory (DFT) combined with dynamical mean-field theory (DMFT). Users can calculate physical properties of chemically disordered compounds and alloys within CPA+DMFT formalism.
An application for modeling and visualization of molecules for quantum chemical calculation. This application implements a construction of
molecular structures with classical molecular dynamics simulation and structure optimization by simple generic force fields, and a preparation of input files for applications of quantum chemical calculation such as Gaussian. A binary package for Windows XP is available, and informal packages for Windows 7, iPad, and Linux exist.
A set of tools for alloy theory analysis in combination with first-principles calculation packages. Free energy and thermodynamic phase diagrams of alloy systems are calculated by combining the cluster expansion method with Monte Carlo simulations. Interfaces with major first-principles code including Quantum Espresso, VASP, and ABINIT are provided.
A set of python modules for modeling atomic structures, running simulations, and visualizing results. These modules provide interfaces for various application of first-principles calculation, classical molecular dynamics, and quantum chemical calculation through GUI, command line, or python scripts. The source code is available under the LGPL.
Payware for evaluation of electron transport based on nonequilibrium Green’s function. This application is descended from the SIESTA application, and can calculate electronic transport properties of bulk materials and molecules inserted between leads by performing electronic state calculation under a finite bias. One can choose either density functional method or semiempirical method, and can control external factors such as gate voltages. It also implements structure optimization and analysis of chemical reaction paths.
An open-source application of molecular modeling/editing for quantum chemical calculation. This application supports graphical user interface (GUI) for input-file preparation for software of quantum chemical calculation such as GAMESS, Gaussian, etc., and displays their results by reading output files. It can also make movies in the formats of vector graphics, POV-Ray, and so on.
A general-purpose application for visualization equipped with many display functions. By simple operation by a mouse, this application realizes various kinds of visualization such as positions and shapes of general objects, isosurfaces, volume rendering, and so on. It supports new display functions by making individual modules as well as making movies.
