To access the executables you should load the 'exciting' module into your environment.

module load exciting/exciting.boron

Prepare your own input file. More information about the input file can be found .

Run the exciting code with your input file. Here is an example MPI job script :

#!/bin/bash --login

# PBS job options (name, compute nodes, job time)
#PBS -N exciting
#PBS -l select=2
#PBS -l walltime=0:20:00

# Make sure you change this to your budget code
#PBS -A budget

# Load module for the exciting code
module load exciting/exciting.boron

# Make sure any symbolic links are resolved to absolute path
export PBS_O_WORKDIR=$(readlink -f $PBS_O_WORKDIR)               

# Change to the direcotry that the job was submitted from
# (remember this should be on the /work filesystem)

# Set the number of threads to 1

# set the path for EXCITINGRUNDIR. You can set the path to your own directory.

# Launch the parallel job
# Replace input.xml with your own input file
