What is CPMD?
The CPMD code is a parallelized plane wave / pseudopotential implementation of Density Functional Theory, particularly designed for ab-initio molecular dynamics.
The CPMD consortium has been established in 2001 in order to coordinate the development and distribution of the CPMD code. It is a virtual organization that comprises all the users and developers of the CPMD code around the world. This organization is coordinated by Dr. Alessandro Curioni (Manager, Cognitive Computing and Computational Sciences, IBM Zurich Research Laboratory) and was founded by Prof. Michele Parrinello (USI) and Prof. Wanda Andreoni (EPFL).
CPMD is jointly copyrighted by IBM Corporation and Max-Planck Institut, Stuttgart.
