       abinis - Sequential version of ABINIT


           abinis < input file > log file



        abinis is an atomic-scale simulation software and is part of the
       ABINIT project.

        ABINIT is a package the main program allows one to find the total
       energy, charge density and electronic structure of systems made of
       electrons and nuclei (molecules and periodic solids) within Density
       Functional Theory (DFT), using pseudopotentials and a planewave basis.
       ABINIT also includes options to optimize the geometry according to the
       DFT forces and stresses, or to perform molecular dynamics simulations
       using these forces, or to generate dynamical matrices, Born effective
       charges, and dielectric tensors. Excited states can be computed within
       the Time-Dependent Density Functional Theory (for molecules), or within
       Many-Body Perturbation Theory (the GW approximation).

       By default abinis reads an info block from standard input and logs
       run-time messages to standard output, while writing the results of the
       simulation to a file specified in the info block. The format of this
       info block is described in   abinit.files(5) .

        abinis is the sequential version of the ABINIT code, which means that
       it will run on one processor only. See   abinip(1)  if you are
       interested in multiprocessor simulations.


       This man page is correct for the version 4.5 of ABINIT.
