CRYSTAL is a general-purpose ab initio periodic program for the study of crystalline solids. It computes chemical and physical properties of periodic systems within Hartree–Fock, density functional or various hybrid approximations. Symmetry is fully exploited at all steps of the calculation. In this work, the last version of the code (CRYSTAL14) is presented. New capabilities and enhancements are discussed along with selected applications and performance benchmarks.
