A Matlab Prototyping Platform for Real-space Density Functional Theory
MetadataShow full item record
we present M-SPARC: Matlab-Simulation Package for Ab-initio Real-space Calculations. It can perform pseudopotential spin-polarized and unpolarized Kohn-Sham Density Functional Theory (DFT) simulations for isolated systems such as molecules as well as extended systems such as crystals, surfaces, and nanowires. M-SPARC provides a rapid prototyping platform for the development and testing of new algorithms and methods in real-space DFT, with the potential to significantly accelerate the rate of advancements in the field. It also provides a convenient avenue for the accurate first-principles study of small to moderate-sized systems.
