WEST Data Collections

The WEST Data Collections provide open web-based access to electronic structure properties computed with WEST.

List of Data Collections


Benchmark of G0W0 on 100 molecules[1-2]. The results obtained with WEST are compared with those of other all electron and pseudopotential codes.
