GPAW Example

GPAW is a density-functional theory (DFT) Python code based on the projector-augmented wave (PAW) method and the atomic simulation environment (ASE). The wave functions can be described with plane-waves, real-space uniform grids, multigrid methods and the finite-difference approximation, atom-centered basis-functions.

Given below is an example of GPAW simulation on Rescale using MPI parallelization.
