ABINIT is a package whose main program allows one to find the total energy,
charge density and electronic structure of systems made of electrons and
nuclei (molecules and periodic solids) within Density Functional Theory (DFT),
using pseudopotentials and a planewave basis.
ABINIT also includes options to optimize the geometry according to the DFT
forces and stresses, or to perform molecular dynamics simulations using these
forces, or to generate dynamical matrices, Born effective charges, and
dielectric tensors. Excited states can be computed within the TimeDependent
Density Functional Theory (for molecules), or within ManyBody Perturbation
Theory (the GW approximation). In addition to the main ABINIT code, different
utility programs are provided.
This package contains the executables needed to perform calculations (however,
pseudopotentials are not supplied). For a set of pseudopotentials, install
the abinitdata package.

OpenMX (Open source package for Material eXplorer) is a program package for
nanoscale material simulations based on density functional theories (DFT),
normconserving pseudopotentials and pseudoatomic localized
