Full Name:


    The USPEX code has just been released in the public domain, but as for any public code, there are certain terms that users must agree to:

    • The code is given to an individual researcher (not a group or institution), users are not allowed to distribute the code.

    • Citations to the original USPEX publications must be present in all papers that used USPEX:

      • Oganov A.R., Glass C.W. (2006). Crystal structure prediction using ab initio evolutionary techniques: principles and applications. J. Chem. Phys. 124, art. 244704;
      • Oganov A.R., Lyakhov A.O., Valle M. (2011). How evolutionary crystal structure prediction works - and why. Acc. Chem. Res. 44, 227-237;
      • Lyakhov A.O., Oganov A.R., Stokes H.T., Zhu Q. (2013). New developments in evolutionary structure prediction algorithm USPEX. Comp. Phys. Comm. 184, 1172-1182.
    • all new features that the users would like to implement will have to be sent to Prof. A.R. Oganov in order to be included in the common version of USPEX, maximally benefiting the user community. Users of USPEX are welcome to participate in the development of USPEX and will then be named as its coauthors, but will refrain from developing any other codes for structure prediction.

    I agree to the above mentioned terms.
