The Institute for Solid State Physics (ISSP) at the University of Tokyo started a project for advancement of software usability in materials science (PASUMS) in April 2015 to promote the use of the ISSP supercomputer. In order to cope with the increasing complexity and sophistication of parallel computing, PASUMS will focus on programs that are particularly important in the field of condensed matter physics and are expected to be used on the ISSP supercomputer. By creating an environment that enables users to perform advanced parallel computations more easily, we hope to provide highly usable computing resources that enable rapid prediction of new phenomena and verification with experimental results.
Handling of project products
The produces of this project are released under the General Public License (GPL) in principle. Therefore, the results can be used not only on the ISSP supercomputer but also on various computing resources, and are expected to contribute to the development of the entire condensed matter physics community through this project. The University of Tokyo holds the copyright of the new functions and parts developed through this project as the project deliverables. See “5. Is it possible to set a license for the products other than the General Public License (GPL) license?” for the reasons why we set the GPL as a license of PASUMS products.
Presentation of project results (writing papers)
PASUMS team will take the lead in writing papers on the newly developed parts of this project. In addition, if the proposers and collaborators agree, we are considering writing a joint paper on software in general.
If the proposer or research collaborator makes a research presentation related to a newly developed part of this project, please add an acknowledgement of the software development and enhancement team:
yyyy is developed under the support of “Project for advancement of software usability in materials science” in fiscal year xxxx by The Institute for Solid State Physics, The University of Tokyo.
(yyyy is the version number of the feature or software, and xxxx is the year in which the project was selected as a PASUMS project)
