2.1 History of VASP

Here is a small history of the development of VASP (from my personal viewpoint, G. Kresse).

The tetrahedron code was taken from a LMTO-program (original author unknown but it might be Andersen, Jepsen or Blöchl). The communication shmem/MPI kernels were developed by Peter Lockey at Daresbury, and the communication kernel for the parallel FFT was written as far as we know by D. White and M. Payne. Several parts of VASP were also co-developed by A. Eichler, and other members of the group in Vienna.
