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 Time-Dependent Density Functional Theory (for molecules), or within Many-Body 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 abinit-data package.

DRAWxtl reads a basic description of the crystal structure, which includes unit-cell parameters, space group, atomic coordinates, thermal parameters or a Fourier map, and outputs a geometry object that contains polyhedra, planes, lone-pair cones, spheres or ellipsoids, bonds, iso-surface Fourier contours and the unit-cell boundary.

Four forms of graphics are produced:

  • an OpenGL window for immediate viewing
  • the Persistence of Vision Ray Tracer (POV-RAY) scene language for publication-quality drawings
  • the Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML) for dissemination across the Internet
  • a Postscript rendering of the OpenGL window for those who want high-quality output but do not have POV-RAY installed.

File formats DRAWxtl can read include CIF, FDAT, FullProf (pcr), GSAS, SCHAKAL, SHELX, DISCUS and WIEN2k.

The European Theoretical Spectroscopy Facility (ETSF) is a European network dedicated to providing support and services for ongoing research in academic, government and industrial laboratories.

The ETSF is divided into 7 beamlines, each of which is concerned with a specific scientific topic:

  • Optics ;
  • Energy Loss Spectroscopy ;
  • Quantum Transport ;
  • Time-resolved Spectroscopy ;
  • Photo-emission Spectroscopy ;
  • Vibrational Spectroscopy ;
  • X-Rays Spectroscopy.

To allow the adoption of its recommendations about standardization, the ETSF proposes different libraries and tools implementing or using these specifications, as well as widely usable pieces of software.

ETSF_IO is a library of F90 routines to read/write the ETSF file format. This package contains the user tools to:

  • check file conformance to the specifications;
  • extract data from files;
  • merge multiple files from parallel runs, as specified in the specifications.

FeynMF is a LaTeX package for easy drawing of professional-quality Feynman diagrams, illustrations that depict the fundamental interactions of subatomic particles. The diagrams may be created using either the Metafont or MetaPost programs. FeynMF lays out most diagrams satisfactorily from the structure of the graph without any need for manual intervention. Nevertheless all the power of Metafont or MetaPost is available for more obscure cases.

Note that you will need the texlive-metapost package in order to use the MetaPost-based version of FeynMF.

Fityk is a flexible and portable program for nonlinear fitting of analytical functions (especially peak-shaped) to data (usually experimental data). In other words, for nonlinear peak separation and analysis.

It was developed for analyzing diffraction patterns, but can be also used in other fields, since concepts and operations specific for crystallography are separated from the rest of the program.

Fityk offers various nonlinear fitting methods, subtracting background, calibrating data, easy placement of peaks and changing peak parameters, automation of common tasks with scripts, and much more. The main advantage of the program is flexibility - parameters of peaks can be arbitrarily bound to each other, eg. the width of a peak can be an independent variable, can be the same as the width of another peak or can be given by a complicated - common to all peaks - formula.

libjs-sphinxdoc is necessary for the Javascript stuff in the documentation.

Gpiv is a Graphic User Interface program using the GTK/GNOME libraries for Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV). The program gives a quick overview of the parameter settings of the processes and allows to change them easy, running the processes, individually or in a chain, visualizes and displays the results. The processes that may be invoked by Gpiv are:

Image processing: typical image manipulations that might be needed for PIV interrogation.

Image interrogation, resulting into estimators of particle image displacements.

Data validation to test on outliers, peak-locking effect and velocity gradients over the interrogation area's.

Data post-processing: data manipulation, spatial and time scaling to obtain a velocity field from the PIV data, calculation of spatial averages, vorticity and strain.

A collection of programs for images that are generated during a Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) experiment. This is a technique to obtain the velocity field of a fluid flow quantitatively and is performed by tracking tracer particles that have been seeded to a fluid. The technique is also applied for observing deformations at surfaces of (solid) bodies. The package contains:

  • an image processing program for typical filtering and manipulation routines that may be convenient for PIV.
  • an image interrogation program resulting into estimators of particle image displacements.
  • validation programs to test on outliers, peak-locking effect and velocity gradients.
  • post-processing programs for data manipulation (flipping, rotation etc), spatial and time scaling, calculation of spatial averages and derivative quantities from the PIV data, like vorticity and strain.
  • miscellaneous programs and scripts to perform image format conversion, batch-processing, pipeline processing (image evaluation, validation and post-processing at once), calculation of time averages from a series of PIV data sets, data-visualization and data-manipulation.

All programs start with gpiv_.

This package contains all files used by gpivtools and gpivtools-mpi, like the man pages.

Gwyddion is a modular program for Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) data visualization and analysis. It is primarily intended for analysis of height field data obtained by microscopy techniques like

  • Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM),
  • Magnetic Force Microscopy (MFM),
  • Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM),
  • Near-field Scanning Optical Microscopy (SNOM or NSOM) and others. However, it can be used for arbitrary height field and image analysis.

This package contains the main application and its modules. It also contains a GNOME (and Xfce) thumbnailer which creates previews for all file types known to Gwyddion.

Gwyddion's Python scripting interface Pygwy is also included.

The ROOT system provides a set of OO frameworks with all the functionality needed to handle and analyze large amounts of data efficiently.

The Toolkit for Multivariate Analysis (TMVA) provides a ROOT-integrated environment for the parallel processing and evaluation of MVA techniques to discriminate signal from background samples. It presently includes (ranked by complexity):

  • Rectangular cut optimisation
  • Correlated likelihood estimator (PDE approach)
  • Multi-dimensional likelihood estimator (PDE - range-search approach)
  • Fisher (and Mahalanobis) discriminant
  • H-Matrix (chi-squared) estimator
  • Artificial Neural Network (two different implementations)
  • Boosted Decision Trees

The TMVA package includes an implementation for each of these discrimination techniques, their training and testing (performance evaluation). In addition all these methods can be tested in parallel, and hence their performance on a particular data set may easily be compared.

This package provides development files of TMVA package for ROOT.

CERNLIB is a suite of data analysis tools and libraries created for use in physics experiments, but also with applications to other fields such as the biological sciences.

PAW is an interactive program providing interactive graphical presentation and statistical and mathematical analysis tools. It is designed to work on objects familiar to physicists such as histograms, event files (Ntuples), vectors, etc.

The program is linked statically against the CERN libraries on 64-bit architectures in order to function properly, as its design is not very 64-bit clean.

The ROOT system provides a set of OO frameworks with all the functionality needed to handle and analyze large amounts of data efficiently.

With the data defined as a set of objects, specialized storage methods can give direct access to the separate attributes of the selected objects, without having to touch the bulk of the data. Included are histogramming methods in 1, 2 and 3 dimensions, curve fitting, function evaluation, minimization, graphics and visualization classes to allow the easy creation of an analysis system that can query and process the data interactively or in batch mode.

The command language, the scripting (or macro) language, and the programming language are all C++, thanks to the built-in CINT C++ interpreter. This interpreter removes the time consuming compile/link cycle, allowing for fast prototyping of the macros, and providing a good environment to learn C++. If more performance is needed, the interactively developed macros can be compiled using a C++ compiler.

The system has been designed in such a way that it can query its databases in parallel on MPP machines or on clusters of workstations or high-end PCs. ROOT is an open system that can be dynamically extended by linking external libraries. This makes ROOT a premier platform on which to build data acquisition, simulation and data analysis systems.

This package is a metapackage to ensure the installation of all possible ROOT packages on a system.

Tessa is a three-dimensional simulation software for optical systems at the wavelength scale, based on the finite differences time-domain method (FDTD). It focuses on simulating large, resonating structures, but can also be used to study propagating beams. It can simulate arbitrary dielectric and absorbing materials, and can be used on single workstations as well as clusters.

Tessa is believed to be terribly efficient.

V_Sim visualizes atomic structures such as crystals, grain boundaries, molecules and so on (either in binary format, or in plain text format).

The rendering is done in pseudo-3D with spheres (atoms) or arrows (spins). The user can interact through many functions to choose the view, set the bindings, draw cutting planes, compute surfaces from scalar fields, duplicate nodes, measure geometry... Moreover V_Sim allows one to export the view as images in PNG, JPG, PDF (bitmap), SVG (scheme) and other formats. Some tools are also available to colorize atoms from data values or to animate on screen many position files.

IFEFFIT is an interactive program for XAFS analysis. It combines the high-quality analysis algorithms of AUTOBK and FEFFIT with graphical display of XAFS data and general data manipulation.

IFEFFIT comes as a command-line program, but the underlying functionality is available as a programming library. The IFEFFIT library can be used from C, Fortran, Tcl, Perl, and Python. This allows a variety of user interfaces (both graphical and non-graphical) to be written around IFEFFIT. Currently, three graphical user interfaces: G.I.FEFFIT, ATHENA/ARTEMIS, and SIXPACK are built on the underlying IFEFFIT library. IFEFFIT and all three GUIs are under active development, but are fairly well tested and ready for use.

FDMNES calculates the spectra of different spectroscopies related to the real or virtual absorption of x-ray in material. It gives the absorption cross sections of photons around the ionization edge, that is in the energy range of XANES in the EXAFS. The calculation is performed with all conditions of rectilinear or circular polarization. In the same way, it calculates the structure factors and intensities of anomalous or resonant diffraction spectra (DAFS or RXD). FDMNES also allows the comparison of the simulated spectra to experimental ones with the help of objective criteria.

Blzpack - wnpp
library for solving large sparse eigenproblems
Responsible: Ondrej Certik
License: BSD
Debian package not available

BLZPACK (for Block LancZos PACKage, release 04/00) is a standard Fortran 77 implementation of the block Lanczos algorithm intended for the solution of the standard eigenvalue problem Ax=µx or the generalized eigenvalue problem Ax=µBx, where A and B are real, sparse symmetric matrices, µ an eigenvalue and x an eigenvector.

The development of this eigensolver was motivated by the need to solve large, sparse, generalized problems from free vibration analyses in structural engineering. Several upgrades were performed afterwards aiming at the solution of eigenvalues problems from a wider range of applications.
