BAGEL (Brilliantly Advanced General Electronic-structure Library) is a computational chemistry package aimed at large-scale parallel computations. It specializes on highgly accurate methods and includes density-fitting and relativistic effects for most of the methods it implements.

It can compute energies and gradients for the following methods:

  • Hartree-Fock (HF)
  • Density-Functional Theory (DFT)
  • Second-order Moeller-Plesset perturbation theory (MP2)
  • Complete active space SCF (CASSCF)
  • Complete active space second order perturbation theory (CASPT2)
  • Extended multistate CASPT2 (XMS-CASPT2)

Additionally, it can compute energies for the following methods:

  • Configuration-interaction singles (CIS)
  • Full configuration-interaction (FCI)
  • Multi-state internally contracted multireference configuration-interaction (ic-MRCI)
  • N-electron valence-state second order perturbation theory (NEVPT2)
  • Active-space decomposition (ASD) for dimers and for multiple sites via density matrix renormalization group (ASD-DMRG)

BAGEL is able to optimize stationary geometries and conical intersections and to compute vibrational frequencies.

BAGEL does not include a disk interface, so computations need to fit in memory.

Executable to call libchemps2-3 from the command line
Versions of package chemps2
Popcon: 2 users (0 upd.)*
Versions and Archs
License: DFSG free

chemps2 is a scientific library which contains a spin-adapted implementation of the density matrix renormalization group (DMRG) for ab initio quantum chemistry. This wavefunction method allows one to obtain numerical accuracy in active spaces beyond the capabilities of full configuration interaction (FCI), and allows one to extract the 2-, 3-, and 4-particle reduced density matrices (2-, 3- and 4-RDM) of the active space.

For general active spaces up to 40 electrons in 40 orbitals can be handled with DMRG, and for one-dimensional active spaces up to 100 electrons in 100 orbitals. The 2-RDM of these active spaces can also be easily extracted, while the 3- and 4-RDM are limited to about 28 orbitals.

When the active space size becomes prohibitively expensive for FCI, DMRG can be used to replace the FCI solver in the complete active space self consistent field (CASSCF) method and the corresponding complete active space second order perturbation theory (CASPT2). The corresponding methods are called DMRG-SCF and DMRG-CASPT2, respectively. For DMRG-SCF the active space 2-RDM is required, and for DMRG-CASPT2 the active space 4-RDM.

This package installs the executable which parses Hamiltonians in fcidump format, performs DMRG-SCF and DMRG-CASPT2 calculations as specified by the user.
