# GENE <a name="gene"></a>
GENE is a gyro kinetic plasma turbulence code which has been developed since the late 1990’s and is physically very comprehensive and flexible as well as computationally very efficient and highly scalable. Originally used for flux-tube simulations, today GENE also operates as a global code, either gradient- or flux-driven. An arbitrary number of gyro kinetic particle species can be taken into account, including electromagnetic effects and collisions. GENE is, in principle, able to cover the widest possible range of scales, all the way from the system size (where nonlocal effects or avalanches can play a role) down to sub-ion-gyroradius scales (where ETG or micro tearing modes may contribute to the transport), depending on the available computer resources. Moreover, there exist interfaces to various MHD equilibrium codes. GENE has been carefully benchmarked against theoretical results and other codes.
The GENE code is written in Fortran 90 and C and is parallelized with pure MPI. It strongly relies on a Fast Fourier Transform library and has built-in support for FFTW, MKL or ESSL. It also uses LAPACK and ScaLapack routines for LU decomposition and solution of a linear system of equations of moderate size (up to 1000 unknowns).

# GPAW <a name="gpaw"></a>
GPAW is an efficient program package for electronic structure calculations based on the density functional theory (DFT) and the time-dependent density functional theory (TD-DFT). The density-functional theory allows studies of ground state properties such as energetics and equilibrium geometries, while the time-dependent density functional theory can be used for calculating excited state properties such as optical spectra. The program package includes two complementary implementations of time-dependent density functional theory: a linear response formalism and a time-propagation in real time.
