The Massively Parallel Quantum Chemistry Program
MPQC 3.0 (alpha)
MPQC computes the properties of molecules, ab initio, on a wide variety of
MPQC can compute production-quality spin-restricted and spin-unrestricted
Hartree-Fock energies and gradients, density functional theory energies and
gradients, second-order perturbation theory energies and gradients (closed-shell only).
MPQC also includes implementation of several advanced methods, such as
explicitly correlated coupled-cluster.
MPQC runs on Linux and OS X standalone multicore platforms and distributed-memory
