The ALPS project (Algorithms and Libraries for Physics Simulations) is an open source effort aiming at providing high-end simulation codes for strongly correlated quantum mechanical systems as well as C++ libraries for simplifying the development of such code. ALPS strives to increase software reuse in the physics community.
Announcement:ALPS 2.1 has been released
Useful information how to install the alps libraries and applications on workstations and clusters.
The main new feature of the new ALPS 2.1 release include:
- New build system using CMake simplifies builds and allows builds on Windows, the Cray XT5 and other platforms that were not supported before
- Binary installer packages
- Binary file format HDF5 uses less space and much faster I/O
- Python-based evaluation and plotting tools are simpler, much more flexible and powerful
- Integration with VisTrails workflow provenance system, version 2.0
- New applications: DMFT and TEBD
- Updated applications
- New and more tutorials
More features, new applications, and scalability to petaflop-class machines are planned for ALPS 3
See ALPS_1.3 to access the previous version of ALPS.
