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.

These Wiki pages serve as an interactive medium to develop current and future ALPS related web pages, first and foremost, the creation of a novel set of tutorial web pages, see the tutorial pages. To contribute to this Wiki you will need to have an account allowing you to edit the content of the Wiki pages.

Setup and Installation

Useful information how to install the alps libraries and applications on workstations and clusters.

Running an Application

How to run and restart applications on workstations and clusters.

Tutorials and Documentation

We are generating a series of new tutorial web pages that shall facilitate the usage of the ALPS software to solve physics problems.


Check back regularly to read the latest news and information on the people contributing to the project.

User Forum

Go here to discuss the ALPS libraries and applications with the community of developers. This is the place to address any questions you encounter while using any codes of the ALPS project.

Papers and Talks

Go here to find papers on the ALPS project, talks from the first user workshop and a list of papers citing the ALPS project.

You can find the old static ALPS HTML pages here.
