Abstract: EPW Electron-Phonon coupling using Wannier functions is a program writtenin FORTRAN90 for calculating the electron-phonon coupling in periodic systemsusing density-functional perturbation theory and maximally-localized Wannierfunctions. EPW can calculate electron-phonon interaction self-energies,electron-phonon spectral functions, and total as well as mode-resolvedelectron-phonon coupling strengths. The calculation of the electron-phononcoupling requires a very accurate sampling of electron-phonon scatteringprocesses throughout the Brillouin zone, hence reliable calculations can beprohibitively time-consuming. EPW combines the Kohn-Sham electronic eigenstatesand the vibrational eigenmodes provided by the Quantum-ESPRESSO package 1with the maximally localized Wannier functions provided by the wannier90package 2 in order to generate electron-phonon matrix elements on arbitrarilydense Brillouin zone grids using a generalized Fourier interpolation. Thisfeature of EPW leads to fast and accurate calculations of the electron-phononcoupling, and enables the study of the electron-phonon coupling in large andcomplex systems.
