FIESTA: the Filipino Initiative on Electronic Structure Theory and Applications


FIESTA—the Filipino Initiative on Electronic Structure Theory and Applications—a new computational chemistry software is developed. The new software is capable of doing groundstate self-consistent field (SCF) single-point restricted Hartree-Fock (RHF) calculation of polyelectronic and polyatomic systems using the Slater-type orbital basis set STO-3G. The new program implements well-known quantum mechanical theories for practical calculations. FIESTA is written using two programming languages, namely C and FORTRAN. It is accurate and user-friendly. It runs efficiently under the Linux operating system and is able to reproduce the energies calculated using well-established standard quantum chemical software products Gaussian, Firefly and Molpro.
