calphy(pronounced cal-phee) is a Python library and command line tool for calculation of free energies. It uses LAMMPS as the molecular dynamics driver to enable calculation of free energies using thermodynamic integration in a completely automated and efficient manner. The various methods that calphy can perform are:

Calphy works with all interatomic potentials implemented in LAMMPS and can obtain reliable results with low error bars in as low as 50 ps of simulation time with less than 3000 atoms. More information about the methods in calphy can be found in the associated publication.
