SIESTA LICENCE for COMPUTER CENTRES Motivation and Preamble The SIESTA program has been devised for its general use in research within the academic community. Some conditions have been defined for the use, distribution, and modification of SIESTA, which the authors consider fair and within the common fair practices in the academic community. 1. Definitions "The Authors" are: * Emilio Artacho, University of Cambridge, and IkerBasque and CIC-Nanogune, San Sebastián * José María Cela, Barcelona Supercomputing Center * Julian Gale, Curtin University of Technology, Perth * Alberto García, ICMAB-CSIC, Barcelona * Javier Junquera, Universidad de Cantabria, Santander * Pablo Ordejón, CIN2-CSIC, Barcelona * Daniel Sánchez-Portal, Centro de Física de Materiales, CSIC-UPV/EHU, San Sebastián * José M. Soler, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid Although we, the Authors, acknowledge that a limited number of auxiliary subroutines were written by (or are based on previous subroutines written by) other authors consider that the implementation of all the basic algorithms of the SIESTA program is ours. The Siesta team ("the Developers") are the Authors and: * Richard M. Martin, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign "The Copyright-Holder" is the set of Authors. The valid distributors of the Siesta package ("The Distributors") are the Developers as specified above. "The SIESTA package" is the suite of software, including the SIESTA code itself, but also all other software, documentation, scripts, and ancillary support material distributed as a single entity. This Licence covers the entirety of said data. The Licensee is the person (never an institution) to whom the SIESTA package is distributed (under the terms of this Licence) by the Distributors; they are bound by this agreement. 2. NO WARRANTY There is no warranty for any part of the SIESTA package. The SIESTA package is provided by the Distributors "as-is" without warranty of any kind, either express or implied, including but not limited to the implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. In no event shall the Distributors be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, exemplary, or consequential damages (including, but not limited to, procurement of substitute goods or services; loss of use, data, or profits; or business interruption) however caused and on any theory of liability, whether in contract, strict liability, or tort (including negligence or otherwise) arising in any way out of the use of this software, even if advised of the possibility of such damage. The entire risk as to the quality or performance of the program, or any action the Licensee may take based on the output of any part of the SIESTA package, is with the Licensee. 3. Limitation of Usage The Licensee is hereby provided with a non-exclusive, royalty-free right to install the SIESTA package in any (or several) of the computers of the Licensee’s Centre, and manipulate it in order to compile the SIESTA program and the auxiliary programs distributed in the package, and to make the binary executable files (of SIESTA and auxiliary codes) accessible to any independently licensed SIESTA user that has access to the Licensee computers. The Licensee is bound by this agreement to grant access to the (source or executable) files only to people holding a valid Licence to use SIESTA, and prevent access to any other party. This Licence does not grant the Licensee the right to use, develop or distribute either the SIESTA package or any of its components. For such purposes, a separate SIESTA user licence has to be issued to a member or members of the Licensee Centre (person, not the institution), if applicable. The Licensee is hereby also requested to cite the following papers in any document issued by the Centre that refers to the SIESTA package: 1. “Self-consistent order-N density-functional calculations for very large systems”, P. Ordejón, E. Artacho and J. M. Soler, Phys. Rev. B (Rapid Comm.) 53, R10441-10443 (1996). 2. “The SIESTA method for ab initio order-N materials simulation” J. M. Soler, E. Artacho,J. D. Gale, A. García, J. Junquera, P. Ordejón, and D. Sánchez-Portal, J. Phys.: Condens. Matt. 14, 2745-2779 (2002). Other papers relevant to the SIESTA package and method can also be cited as best scientific practice dictates. Licensees are recommended to send reference to the Developers of any publication containing results wholly or partially derived from the results of use of the SIESTA package. 4. Support The present Licence does not imply support services of any kind to the Licensee by the Distributors, including, but not limited to, installation, compilation and use of the software in the package. 5. All Other Rights All other rights not explicitly mentioned in this document are reserved. In particular, the Authors reserve all rights to resolve any and all conflicts arising in the development and distribution policies of the SIESTA package.
