Atomistica

Atomistica is a library of interatomic potentials, including empirical potentials and non-orthogonal tight-binding. It is designed to be plugged into different simulation environments. We currently support the Atomic Simulation Environment (ASE) and the Large-scale Atomic/Molecular Massively Parallel Simulator (LAMMPS). A list of interatomic potentials can be found here.

Usage

Atomistica can be used in two distinct manners. It is recommended to compile the ASE interface first and run the tests in the tests subdirectory. (See ASE intructions below.)

Currently supported simulation environments are...

  1. ...the Atomistic Simulation Environment
    (ASE - see https://wiki.fysik.dtu.dk/ase/)

  2. ...the Large-scale Atomic/Molecular Massively Parallel Simulator
    (LAMMPS - see https://lammps.sandia.gov/)

  3. ...MDCORE, the standalone molecular dynamics code of Atomistica. Note that there is no documentation for the standalone version.

You need the following packages:

  • Python 2.6.0 or greater (Python is needed even if you do not compile the Python interface to auto-generate parts of the source code)

Contact

This software is developed at the University of Freiburg and Fraunhofer IWM. Please write to Lars Pastewka (lars.pastewka@imtek.uni-freiburg.de) for questions and suggestions. A complete list of contributors can be found here.
