External routines: (all optional) BigDFT[3], ETSF IO[4], libxc [5], NetCDF [6], MPI [7], Wannier90[8].

Nature of problem:
This package has the purpose of computing accurately material and nanostructure properties : electronic structure, bond lengths, bond angles, primitive cell size, cohesive energy, dielectric properties, vibrational properties, elastic properties, optical properties, magnetic properties, non-linear couplings, electronic and vibrational lifetimes, ...

Solution method:
Software application based on Density Functional Theory and Many-Body Perturbation Theory, pseudopotentials, with plane waves, projector augmented-waves (PAW) or wavelets as basis functions.

Running time:
From less than one second for the simplest tests, to several weeks. The vast majority of the >600 provided tests run in less than 30 seconds.
