ORCA

  • Level of openness 3 ★★★
  • Document quality 2 ★★☆

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.

Octopus

  • Level of openness 3 ★★★
  • Document quality 3 ★★★

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.

OpenFFT

  • Level of openness 3 ★★★
  • Document quality 2 ★★☆

OpenFFT is an open source parallel package for computing multi-dimensional Fast Fourier Transforms (3-D and 4-D FFTs) of both real and complex numbers of arbitrary input size. It originates from OpenMX (Open source package for Material eXplorer). OpenFFT adopts a communication-optimal domain decomposition method that is adaptive and capable of localizing data when transposing from one dimension to another for reducing the total volume of communication. It is written in C and MPI, with support for Fortran through the Fortran interface, and employs FFTW3 for computing 1-D FFTs.
