An application for adding a function of the replica exchange method to the existing applications for molecular dynamics simulation such as MODYLAS, AMBER, and CHARMM. Without changing original programs of molecular dynamics, the replica exchange method can be implemented easily. This application also shows high performance in massive parallel computing by the K-computer.
This is a structure analysis program for solutes and solvents, based on the statistical mechanics theory of liquids. The program determines the solvent density distribution surrounding the solute, and calculates various physical values such as the solvation free energy, compressibility, and partial molar volume. The program implements a parallelized fast Fourier transform routine for large-scale parallel computing, and can analyze molecular functions such as the ligand binding affinity of proteins, that would be difficult using other methods.
A program package for electronic state calculations based on two-component relativistic quantum chemical theories. Several schemes and algorithms, which are specialized in calculations of molecules containing heavy elements, have been implemented. Single-point energies for ground and excited states, geometry optimizations, and molecular properties are available. Furthermore, the package can perform accurate calculations for molecules including many heavy atoms such as metal clusters with practical computational cost.
An open-source application for the first-principles calculation based on the all-electron method with localized bases. By adopting the full-potential LMTO method, high-speed electronic state calculation can be performed with a less number of bases compared with the standard all-electron method. There is no restriction on symmetries as in the LMTO-ASA method, and spin polarization and spin-orbit interaction can also be treated.
FORTRAN-based software package developed by the Behler Group for implementing Behler-Parinello neural network potentials. Potentials can be constructed, evaluated, and used for molecular dynamics simulations using LAMMPS. The newest generation of neural network potentials that take into account long-range electrostatic interactions are implemented.
An application for the Rietveld analysis used in X-ray and neutron diffraction experiments. This application determines lattice constants and atomic coordinates from X-ray and neutron diffraction data on powder samples by pattern fitting based on the maximum entropy method (MEM). It can also analyze materials with random atomic configuration effectively. It supports Windows and Mac OS, and is still being developed actively.
A simple open-source application for visualization compatible to Protein Data Bank (PDB) format. This application also supports other formats such as Sybyl, Molden, Mopac, and CHARMM. It is a pioneering piece of software as an interactive PDB viewer.
A unified wrapper library for sequential and parallel versions of eigenvalue solvers. Sequential versions of dense-matrix diagonalization (LAPACK), parallel versions of dense-matrix diagonalization (EigenExa, ELPA, ScaLAPACK, etc.), and sequential/parallel versions of sparse-matrix diagonalization (SLEPc, Trilinos/Anasazi, etc.) can be installed quickly, and can be called from user’s program easily. Physical quantities written by eigenvalues or eigenvectors can also be evaluated by both sequential and parallel computation.
RSPACE is a first-principles code package based on a real-space finite-difference pseudo-potential method. It computes electronic states with high-speed and high precision in aperiodic systems of surfaces, solid interfaces, clusters, nanostructures, and so forth. It provides large-scale computing for semiconductor devices of nanostructure surface and interface reactions, calculation of transport properties in semi-infinite boundary conditions, and a massively parallel computing using the space partitioning method.
RSDFT is an ab-initio program with the real-space difference method and a pseudo-potential method. Using density functional theory (DFT), this calculates electronic states in a vast range of physical systems: crystals, interfaces, molecules, etc. RSDFT is suitable for highly parallel computing because it does not need the fast Fourier transformation. By using the K-computer, this program can calculate the electronic states of around 100,000 atoms. The Gordon Bell Prize for Peak-Performance was awarded to RSDFT in 2011.
