MIT Photonic-Bands, parallel (mpich) version

The MIT Photonic-Bands package is a free program for computing the band structures (dispersion relations) and electromagnetic modes of periodic dielectric structures, on both serial and parallel computers. It was developed by Steven G. Johnson at MIT in the Joannopoulos Ab Initio Physics group, and designed to study photonic crystal structures.

This package contains a parallel version of MPB, using the mpich implementation of the MPI protocol. It allows for calculations on clusters of computers.

Note that you must install libhdf5-mpich if your cluster doesn't have a common filesystem available on all nodes.

Package version:1.4.2-16
