USPEX_v10.5 is available now. In addition, we have recently released a python version of USPEX which is called USPEX 2023.0. If you would like to obtain our code for your research use, please register.
We suggest that new users go through the USPEX tutorial and carefully study the Manual. USPEX developers cannot take any responsibility from careless use of the code.
There are simple 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.
