Welcome to the ALPS project.


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

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
