Introduction

The KIM API is an Application Programming Interface for atomistic simulations. The API provides a standard for exchanging information between atomistic simulation codes (molecular dynamics, molecular statics, lattice dynamics, Monte Carlo, etc.) and interatomic models (potentials or force fields). It also includes a set of library routines for using the API with bindings for

 

FORTRAN 77

Fortran 90/95

Fortran 2003

C

C++

By conforming to this API, an atomistic simulation code will seamlessly work with any KIM-compliant interatomic model written in any supported language. The interface is computationally efficient and often requires relatively minor changes to existing codes.
