Fionn: 2.5 r13225


CP2K is a program, written in Fortran 95, to perform atomistic and molecular simulations of solid state, liquid, molecular and biological systems. It provides a general framework for different methods such as e.g. density functional theory (DFT) using a mixed Gaussian and plane waves approach (GPW), and classical pair and many-body potentials.

CP2K provides state-of-the-art methods for efficient and accurate atomistic simulations, sources are freely available and actively improved. It is therefore easy to give the code a try, and to make modifications as needed.

The code is compiled with OpenMP support enabled. The binary name is cp2k.psmp.


CP2K is freely available under the GNU General Public License.
