The ALPS libraries are part of the ALPS project (Parallel Algorithms for Lattice
Models), which aims at providing generic parallel algorithms for classical and
quantum lattice models and provides utility classes and algorithm for many other
problems. It strives to increase software reuse in the physics community.
The following libraries are publicly available as part of the ALPS library
alps/general(*): generally usefull classes
alps/random(*): extensions to the Boost and
C++ random number libraries.
alps/osiris(*): serialization and communication
alps/parser(*): helper functions to parse
and write XML files
alps/alea: Monte Carlo measurements and evaluation
alps/graph: Extensions to the Boost Graph
alps/lattice: lattices and graphs
alps/model: quantum lattice models
alps/scheduler: an automatically parallelizing
scheduler for Monte Carlo simulations
alps/graph: graph algorithms extending the
Boost graph library
alps/hdf5: a library to read an write HDF5
files from C++
Besides the helper tools for the scheduler library
we have provided a few sample tools for the manipulation
of the XML files created by the ALPS programs.
