The Atomic Simulation Environment (ASE) is the common part of the simulation tools developped at CAMD_. The ASE provides modules for moving atoms, analyzing simulations etc. The ASE is *not* able to calculate energies or forces on the atoms, for this task it relies on a number of Calculators_. A calculator may do a complete quantum-mechanical calculation, or may use simpler (semi-)empirical potential. ## page was renamed from Atomic_Simulation_Environment

**WARNING:** Please use the new `ASE version 3 <https://wiki.fysik.dtu.dk/ase>`_ package,
unless you have a very good reason for using the old ASE version 2.

ASE version 3
=============

A "new" ASE is under development. The documentation of this ASE-3 is elsewhere: https://wiki.fysik.dtu.dk/ase.

WARNING: Please use the new ASE version 3 package, unless you have a very good reason for using the old ASE version 2.

OLD ASE version 2

ASE version 2 is no longer being maintained. Please use the new ASE version 3 package, unless you have a very good reason for using the old ASE version 2.

Warning due to the unmaintained Numeric package, ASE2 does not work on 64-bit systems with python version > 2.4. If this is you case consider using the new ASE version 3 package.

Please see the list of calculators that ASE can collaborate with.
