Globus program



GLOBUS is a com­put­er pro­gram per­form­ing the struc­ture opti­miza­tion, glob­al min­i­mum search and poten­tial para­me­ters fit­ting for atom­ic struc­tures includ­ing mol­e­cules, atom­ic and mol­e­c­u­lar clus­ters, and peri­od­ic sys­tems with 1D, 2D, and 3D peri­od­ic bound­ary con­di­tions.
