What can ABCrystal do?

ABCrystal is a light-weighted but powerful program for atomic and molecular crystal structure predictions. In one sentence, with a molecular structure and its Z, ABCrystal will give you a set of possible crystal structures (both atomic positions and cell are optimized) under specified pressure and crystal family in several seconds or hours by itself without any third-party software.
