adcc: Seamlessly connect your program to ADC

Build Status

adcc (ADC-connect) is a Python-based framework for calculating molecular spectra and electronically excited states with the algebraic-diagrammatic construction (ADC) approach.

Arbitrary host programs may be used to supply a self-consistent field (SCF) reference to start off the ADC calculation. Currently adcc comes with ready-to-use interfaces to four programs: PySCF, Psi4, VeloxChem and molsturm. Adding other SCF codes or starting a calculation from statically computed data can be easily achieved.

Try adcc in your browser at or take a look at the adcc documentation for more details and installation instructions.
