ESPResSo 3.3.0 released

The ESPResSo team is proud to announce that we have just released version 3.3.0 of ESPResSo !

Highlights of this release include

  • Calculation of the electrokinetic equations via the ELECTROKINETICS feature,
  • The Shan/Chen method for multi component lattice Boltzmann fluids,
  • the P3M and MMM1D methods can now be computed on a GPU,
  • ESPResSo now has a rudimentary Python interface.

For a complete list of the changes in the release, please refer to the file NEWS. If you find a bug in the release, please report the bug here.

We recommend all users of ESPResSo to update to the new release as soon as possible. With the release of 3.3.0, we will not provide further updates to the ESPResSo 3.3 branch.

Invitation to the ESPResSo Summer School 2013

 

Participants of the ESPResSo Summer School 2012.

Participants of the ESPResSo Summer School 2012.

With this posting we want to invite you to the 2013 ESPResSo Summer School 2013 “Simulating Soft Matter with ESPResSo”, which will take place on October 7th-11th 2013 at the Institute for Computational Physics at the University of Stuttgart. The school consists of lectures and hands-on sessions in two tracks, both for beginners as well as for experienced users of ESPResSo and ESPResSo++. Furthermore, there will be a poster session, where participants have the opportunity to discuss their projects with the other participants and the speakers, and a number of scientific talks where scientists will present recent research projects that were done with any of the software packages. The school is organized by ICP, CECAM and the SimTech Cluster of Excellence.

ESPResSo 3.2.0 released

The ESPResSo team is proud to announce that we have just released version 3.2.0 of ESPResSo !

During the last year, we have on the one hand removed a bit of cruft from the old code, but on the other hand, a number of interesting new features have been added to the software. Here we name just the major features:

  • An immersed boundary code allows to simulate extended flexible objects in a LB fluid.
  • The feature CATALYTIC_REACTIONS models a simple chemical reaction: when a particle of the reactant type comes into the vincinity of a particle of the catalysator type, the reactant is transformed into a particle of the product type.
  • The feature GHMC implements a generalized hybrid Monte-Carlo thermostat.
  • The feature GRANDCANONCIAL provides functions for grandcanonical simulations.
  • When using ROTATION_PER_PARTICLE, it is possible to turn on or off rotational degrees of freedom for the different particles.

For a complete list of the changes in the release, please refer to the file NEWS. If you find a bug in the release, please report the bug here.

We recommend all users of ESPResSo to update to the new release as soon as possible. With the release of 3.2.0, we will not provide further updates to the ESPResSo 3.1 branch.
