HPCVL offers access to the ADF computational chemistry package. This includes the Amsterdam Density Functional (ADF) code for molecular DFT, as well as the BAND solid-state software, and other components. The software runs on our main M9000 comp[ute cluster. To use this software, please type or include in your setup files the command:

use adf2012.01

Alternatively, you can type

use adf

and will be set up for the most current version. If you need to continue to use earlier versions, you can do so by typing

use adf2009.01 

Details about using ADF on our systems can be found in the FAQ file.

Please let us know if you encounter any problems with the new version or need assistance running ADF jobs.
