About APMO
In order to study nuclear quantum effects we have created the Any Particle Molecular Orbital computer package (APMO). The current version of the APMO
code is an implementation of the nuclear orbital and molecular orbital
approaches (NMO) at the HartreeFock level of theory. Currently we have
applied the APMO code to a variety of
systems to elucidate the isotope effects on electronic wave functions,
geometries, dipole moments and electron densities. Although our current
version of the code is slower than regular electronic structure
packages, our code is robust enough to treat any system containing any
combination of quantum particles (i.e. electrons, nuclei, positrons,
muons, etc) within a HartreeFock scheme.
We have followed an objectoriented programming philosophy, so that
the code can be reutilized and extended. Some classes have been
emulated with Fortran and some others constructed with C++. We utilized
the latest Fortran language standard to code the overlap, kinetic
energy, nuclear attraction and repulsion integrals routines. These
routines were coded following the recursive formulas proposed by Obara
and Saika. We employed the Lapack v3.1.1 library for matrix
manipulation. We used the FletcherReeves conjugate gradient algorithm
found in the GSL 1.9 library for geometry optimization.
