The Basque contribution to SIESTA

The famous physics code (SIESTA), developed and advanced from 1996 onwards, accounts with key contributions from scientists appointed at the university of the Basque Country and the Donostia International Physics Center.

Today we have known that one publication about it, resulted to be the 15th most cited physics paper in the world: congratulations!

This is perhaps one of the most remarkable examples, in which scientists of various disciplines integrate with computing resources. It shows that is not necessary to have huge resources but the right ones. And these scientists seem to have had the right amount for doing exceptional science. Congratulations!
