SIESTA (Spanish Initiative for Electronic Structure Simulations with Thousands of Atoms) is a fast electronic structure program that uses a local basis set. It can produce band structures and minimum energy geometries, and can perform first-principles molecular dynamics calculations. This tool allows general-purpose computations to be done on nanoHUB's servers.
