Quantum Espresso, Wannier 90, and HDF5 Download and Installation
PERTURBO uses a few subroutines from the PWSCF and Phonon packages of Quantum Espresso (QE). Therefore, it needs to be compiled on top of QE. PERTURBO needs the output files from Wannier 90 (W90). In addition, PERTURBO uses the HDF5 format to store data. For the detailed instructions on the installation of these packages, please refer to their official websites: QE, W90, HDF5. If you run the calculations on a cluster or a supercomputer, these packages might be already pre-installed. Here we provide some brief instructions on the installation of these packages. Please note that these instructions can be different for your computing environement.
To download QE, one can use the
wget https://github.com/QEF/q-e/archive/qe-6.5.tar.gz tar xvzf qe-6.5.tar.gz cd q-e-qe-6.5
or to clone the package from the QE GitHub repository, specifying the version:
git clone https://github.com/QEF/q-e.git cd q-e git checkout qe-6.5
Once the package is downloaded run the configure command:
one can run
./configure --help to get additional configure options (for the C, C++, Fortran compilers, etc.). Compile QE:
make pw ph pp
We suggest to install Wannier 90 inside the QE folder.
Download the package with
wget https://github.com/wannier-developers/wannier90/archive/v3.0.0.tar.gz tar xvzf v3.0.0.tar.gz cd wannier90-3.0.0
or clone from the GitHub repository:
git clone https://github.com/wannier-developers/wannier90.git cd wannier90
Compile Wannier 90:
cp ./config/make.inc.xxx ./make.inc make
To compile the HDF5 library, please download its source code from the official website. Once the source code is downloaded, please create an empty directory where the HDF5 library will be installed.
For example, the current directory is called ‘mylib’. We download the source code inside the directory called ‘hdf5-1.12.0-source-codes’. Now we are going to install the HDF5 library into a directory called ‘hdf5-1.12.0’. Create the empty directories:
Generate a Makefile for compiling the HDF5 library using the fortran option:
--enable-fortran. Please modify the
'prefix' path to fit your case. Here we compile the serial HDF5 library:
cd hdf5-1.12.0-source-codes ./configure --prefix=mylib/hdf5-1.12.0 --enable-fortran --enable-fortran2003
One can specify the compilers running the
./configure command with the additional options:
FC=<fortran compiler>. For more information, run
./configure --help. Compile HDF5:
make make install
To check whether HDF5 was compiled correctly, one can run the test suite:
Now we have the compiled HDF5 library inside the directory ‘hdf5-1.12.0’. Please use the directory path when compiling PERTURBO (
HDF5_LIB parameters in the PERTURBO make.sys file, see below).
--with-hdf5=<your-hdf5-directory>when configuring QE (more details here).
PERTURBO Download and Installation
In order to download the source code, contact us (click here) and we will:
- [Recommended] add you as a collaborator in our GitHub project
- [If you do not have a GitHub account] send you a .tar.gz file.
To help us keep track of user number, we encourage each individual user to submit a separate request for code download. For example, research groups with multiple users should also have each user submit a request.
Clone from GitHub (or extract .tar.gz) into the QE directory. There are three subdirectories inside the directory “perturbo”:
- “config” contains the system-dependent makefiles make.sys.XXX
- “pert-src” contains the source code of
perturbo.xto compute electron dynamics
- “qe2pert-src” contains the source code of the interface program
The source code is supplemented by the tutorial examples input and output files. More details about the examples can be found in the Organization section.
There are two files in the “perturbo” directory, Makefile and make.sys. PERTURBO uses the config file make.inc of QE for most of the compiler options. The config file make.sys inside the directory “perturbo” specifies additional options required by PERTURBO. Modify make.sys to make it suitable for your system:
specify the path to your HDF5 library:
IFLAGS += -L<path-to-hdf5-dir>/hdf5-1.12.0/lib -lhdf5 -lhdf5_fortran HDF5_LIB = -L<path-to-hdf5-dir>/hdf5-1.12.0/lib -lhdf5 -lhdf5_fortran
Modify the two flags
LDFLAGS for your compilers, for example:
#for intel compiler FFLAGS += -qopenmp -cpp LDFLAGS += -qopenmp
#for gfortran compiler FFLAGS += -fopenmp -x f95-cpp-input LDFLAGS += -fopenmp
If you are going to run PERTURBO on top of QE-6.4.x, please, uncomment the following line:
FFLAGS += -D__QE64
For QE 6.5, please, leave the
FFLAGS line commented.
Once the file make.sys has been modified, you are ready to compile PERTURBO:
After the compilation, a directory called ‘bin’ is generated, which contains two executables,
