Interface was developed to use CRYSTAL code (a computational tool for solid-state chemistry and physics) in evolutionary-based USPEX method for prediction of crystal structures. Use of CRYSTAL code in USPEX enables the use of Gaussian-type localized atomic basis sets and hybrid density functional (DFT) methods.
Interface is written for CRYSTAL17 and USPEX v. 9.4.4. Interface should be also applicable at least for CRYSTAL14. Interface contains MATLAB and bash scripts that need to be added to USPEX folders. Detailed instructions for installation and use are given in README file in Zenodo and GitHub
Practical examples and description can be found from Wiki page: https://wiki.aalto.fi/display/IMM/USPEX+guide. Please, read the paper (https://doi.org/10.1021/acs.jpcc.8b08238) to get more details on the performance of the interface for prediction of the magnetic structures of strongly correlated materials.
