But if you are interested in the details with step-by-step instructions, the following information will be helpful.

What is pw.x and How to Install It?

First things first, you will need access to a server or computer running Fedora 34. This guide was written specifically with a server running Fedora 34 in mind, although it should also work on older, supported versions of the operating system.

Extra info and code examples

Quantum ESPRESSO (formerly known as PWscf) is an integrated suite of computer codes for electronic-structure calculations and materials modeling at the nanoscale. It is based on density-functional theory, plane waves, and pseudopotentials (both norm-conserving, ultrasoft, and PAW). Features include: * Ground-state single-point and band structure calculations using plane-wave self-consistent total energies, forces and stresses * Separable norm-conserving and ultrasoft (Vanderbilt) pseudo-potentials, PAW (Projector Augmented Waves) * Various exchange-correlation functionals, from LDA to generalized-gradient corrections (PW91, PBE, B88-P86, BLYP) to meta-GGA, exact exchange (HF) and hybrid functionals (PBE0, B3LYP, HSE) * Car-Parrinello and Born-Oppenheimer Molecular Dynamics * Structural Optimization including transition states and minimum energy paths * Spin-orbit coupling and noncollinear magnetism * Response properties including phonon frequencies and eigenvectors, effective charges and dielectric tensors, Infrared and Raman cross-sections, EPR and NMR chemical shifts * Spectroscopic properties like K- and L1-edge X-ray Absorption Spectra (XAS) and electronic excitations


You now have a full guide on how to install pw.x using dnf and yum package managers. Also, we showed how to update manually as a single package and different ways to uninstall the pw.x from Fedora 34.
