CPMD is a rather sophisticated program, and requires careful study of the input format, and a certain degree of knowledge about the "nuts and bolts" of computational quantum chemistry and molecular dynamics. It is impossible to use the program efficiently without reading the user documentation, which can be downloaded here. There is an official CPMD homepage with information about the program, donloading a copy yourself, and the history of CPMD. There is also a mailing list.

HPCVL also provides support for the usage of programs that are installed on its clusters. You can get in touch with us via our contact page or by sending email to
