Main features of the AMULET code.

  • Segment version of the continuous time quantum Monte-Carlo method [1] permits efficient calculations of properties down to low temperatures.
  • Our implementation of classical Hirsh-Fye quantum Monte-Carlo [2] is able to evaluate off-diagonal elements of the Green function. Therefore, this solver can be utilized for cluster DMFT calculations [3].
  • Exact diagonalization (experimental) uses full rotationally invariant Coulomb interaction matrix.
  • Different type of correlated impurities can be set up simultaneously for complicated compounds (for example, d and f orbitals at the same time).
  • Calculations can be performed in paramagnetic or magnetically ordered regimes.
  • Any kind of magnetic ordering can be specified.
  • Calculation of magnetic susceptibilities.
  • Evaluation of the k-resolved spectral functions, A(k,ω).
  • CPA+DMFT calculations [4] for materials with a substitutional disorder.
  • Calculation of DFT+DMFT internal energy.
  • MPI parallelized.
  • Simple input format allows one to use almost any band structure code that is able to construct the Hamiltonian in a localized basis set (Wannier like).
