  • ELSI: An open-source, community-driven software interface connecting electronic structure codes to various high-performance solver libraries. Supports five eigensolvers and three density matrix solvers. Adopted by electronic structure code packages DFTB+, DGDFT, FHI-aims, and SIESTA.
  • GPU acceleration in ELPA: A massively parallel dense eigensolver library optimized for distributed-memory HPC resources.
  • FHI-aims: A full-potential, all-electron implementation of density-functional theory and beyond with numeric atom-centered basis functions.
  • Other open-source projects: DFTB+, ESL (electronic structure library), libOMM, NTPoly, PEXSI, SIESTA etc.
