NWChem

Warning

The ARCHER2 Service is not yet available. This documentation is in development.

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. The NWChem software can handle: biomolecules, nanostructures, and solid-state system; from quantum to classical, and all combinations; Gaussian basis functions or plane-waves; scaling from one to thousands of processors; properties and relativity.
