A free software library for numerical diagonalization of quantum spin systems. Although the programs are based on TITPACK, they have been completely rewritten in C/C++ and several extensions have been added. It can handle, for example, the Heisenberg model, the Hubbard model, and the t-J model. This library supports dimension reduction of matrices exploiting symmetries, and it can run in parallel computing environments.
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.
WannierTools is an open-source software package for investigation of novel topological materials. This code works in the tight-binding framework, which can be generated by another software package Wannier90. Users can perform calculations of the Wilson loop, positions of Weyl/Dirac points, nodal line structures, andthe Berry phase around a closed momentum loop and Berry curvature in a part of the Brillouin zone.
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 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 the revolutionary algorithm to structure prediction by using various external energy calculators (VASP, GULP, Quantum Espresso, CASTEP).
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.
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).
