An application for prediction of stable and metastable structures from a chemical composition. For prediction of structures, this application combines the first-principles calculation by external packages (VASP, GULP, siesta, Quantum Espresso, STM4, CP2k, etc.) with various efficient algorithms such as the evolutionary algorithm.
It can be applied to prediction of, e.g., structure of crystals under extreme pressure, nanoparticles, and surface reconstruction.
An open-source application for the first-principles calculation by the all-electron calculation method based on plane wave bases. In addition to standard methods (LDA, GGA, etc.), the LDA+U method, treatment of spin-orbit interaction (noncolinear magnetism), and calculation of phonons are supported. Hybrid parallel computing by OpenMP and MPI is also supported.
An open-source application for translating chemical structure format files. More than 110 formats are supported. This application is actively being developed taking into account use and construction of database and application to infomational technology in chemistry (chemoinformatics). A graphical user interface is alsp provided for Windows.
A numerical library for machine learning. Various functions on machine learning (including supervised learning and unsupervised learning) are implemented in this package. Complex network can be expressed in a simple form by using data flow graphs. Efficient CPU/GPGPU parallel computation is supported to realise efficient operation on large scale data.
PAICS is a program of quantum chemical calculation. In this program, fragment molecular orbital (FMO) method is adopted, by which large molecules including biomolecular systems can be treated with several quantum chemical approaches including HF and MP2 methods. At the same time, PaicsView has been developed, which is a supporting program for making input files and analyzing calculation results.
Open-source tools and a database for molecular simulation. Data of molecular models (interatomic potentials and force fields), result data of molecular simulation, and test tools can be downloaded freely. API (Application Programming Interface) for exchanging information between atomistic simulation codes and interatomic models is also provided.
An open-source application for evaluating superconducting gaps from resutls of the first-principles calculation by Quantum ESPRESSO. By calculating electron-phonon interaction and screened Coulomb interaction from the first-principles calculation, superconducting gaps can be obtained from the gap equation. Quasiparticle densities of states and ultrasonic attenuation rates can also be calculated.
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.
An application for multi-purpose structure analysis based on a finite-element method. This application can analyze static properties, dynamic response, and vibration response. It also can calculate nonlinear dynamics of thermal transport and stress/strain of structures. It implements various numerical algorithms and user can choose an appropriate algorithm to solve the problems. It supports parallel processing and has user customization option by its original program language.
An open source application to simulate crystal structures and to calculate and refine against diffraction pattern and the pair distribution function. A special emphasis placed is on the simulation of materials with disorder and the package provides many tools to create and distribute defects throughout the crystal. Another strong feature is the simulation of nanoparticles.
