Package for handling io of vasp package in kumagai group at Tokyo Institute of Technology

Project description

PyPI - License PyPI - Python Version CircleCI


Vasp Integrated Simulation Environment (vise) is a collection of tools that supports VASP users to prepare input files for the VASP calculations, handle its calculation errors, and analyze its results.

Note1: Only ensure VASP ver5.4.4 so far. Note2: Units used in pydefect are eV for energy and angstrom for length following the vasp convention. Note3: When transforming the structure to the primitive one, antiferromagnetic magnetization is not supported.
