In order to compile the code, you'll need the following programs/libraries on your system:

  • Intel Fortran Compiler
  • C-preprocessor cpp
  • awk
  • GNU make (version >= 3.79.1)
  • LAPACK/BLAS libraries (or compatible)

In order to execute the tests and compare them against precalculated results (autotest) you additionally need:


See the README file in the source for compilation instructions.

The code had been successfully compiled and tested by the developers (using the tests in the autotest system) on the following architectures:

x86_64LinuxIntel Fotran (em64t) 12.1MKL 10.3


Changes in r4305:

Several bug fixes.

Changes in r4198:


Problems related to more than 2 contacts fixed.


Extended dense algebra also on contact-molecule blocks, which in conjunction to open-mp parallel M*M multiplications leads to a considerable speed up of the contour G.F. (depending on number of cores and architecture)

Changes with respect to the official DFTB+ release:

Non-Equilibrium Electron transport calculation:

The possibility of calculating electron transport using the non-equilibrium Greens function formalism had been implemented.
