Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 200(2016)190
Programming language: Python, Fortran 90.
Computer: PCs.
Operating system: Linux.
RAM: Megabytes to Gigabytes depending on problem size
Keywords: Partial Charges, ESP Fitting, DM-REPEAT, MOFs.
Classification: 16.13.

External routines: NumPy [1]

Nature of problem:
Generation of partial charges for classical simulations of periodic systems.

Solution method:
Simultaneous fit of electrostatic potential (ESP) and total dipole fluctuations (TDF). In particular the multiple ESP configurations can be fitted at once.

Restrictions:
Orthorhombic simulation cells

Running time:
It depends on the system size and on the number of ESP configurations used for the fit. Times reported in this paper vary from 20 seconds up to a couple of hours.
