NWChem: Delivering High-Performance Computational Chemistry to Science

caption

NWChem aims to provide its users with computational chemistry tools that are scalable both in their ability to treat large scientific computational chemistry problems efficiently, and in their use of available parallel computing resources from high-performance parallel supercomputers to conventional workstation clusters.

NWChem software can handle

  • Biomolecules, nanostructures, and solid state
  • From quantum to classical, and all combinations
  • Gaussian functions or plane-waves
  • Scaling from one to thousands of processors
  • Properties and relativity

NWChem is developed and maintained by the [EMSL] located at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory ([PNNL]) in Washington State. The latest release (version 6.0) of the code is distributed as open-source under the terms of the [Educational Community License version 2.0] (ECL 2.0).
