LAMMPS is a software for molecular (and particles) dynamics. It can be installed on Mac OS X with several steps. On multi-core Mac, lammps is installed with fftw 3.x and OpenMPI. This document corresponds to lammps-30May13, 31May13, 4Jun13, 5Jun13, 6Jun13, 7Jun13, 13Jun13, 17Jun13, 26Jun13, 27Jun13 and 1Jul13. old versions are obtained from below: Remark: lammps-29Jun13 and lammps-30Jun13 weren't employed because of a compile error. Remark: a package user-atc wasn't employed for lammps-30May13 in this document because of a compile error. Remark: a package phonon was added on lammps-11Mar13. Remark: a package voronoi was added on lammps-25Jan13. Remark: LAMMPS-19Jan13 – 24Jan13 got a compile error of msm_omp.cpp with gcc (i686-apple-darwin11-llvm-gcc-4.2 (GCC) 4.2.1 (Based on Apple Inc. build 5658) (LLVM build 2336.11.00)). then we employed gcc-4.8 from Remark: a package user-molfile was added on lammps-14Jun12. But this document doesn't describe installation of the package. Remark: a package USER-COLVARS was added on lammps-27May12. Remark: built without CUDA package. Remark: OS X 10.6 or later is necessary for GPU/OpenCL package. See Recent LAMMPS News for recent lammps updates. (1) OS X 10.8.x (mountain lion) is employed with MacBook Core2Duo (late 2009). (2) if you employ xcode 4.4 or later, you need to install command line tools for it. (3) downloading gcc-mlion.tar.gz from :


mlion.tar.gz (4.8 / updated 2013) for os x 10.8.x
instruction: (A) $ gunzip gcc-mlion.tar.gz (B) $ sudo tar -xf gcc-mlion.tar -C / (4) downloading gfortran from :


mlion.tar.gz for os x 10.8.x
instruction: (A) $ gunzip gfortran-mlion.tar.gz (B) $ sudo tar -xf gfortrn-mlion.tar -C / (5) you can also obtain gfortran from: Tools - R for Mac OS X developer's page - GNU Fortan for Xcode (6) installation of OpenMPI 1.6.x downloading OpenMPI from

extracting tar file (double clicking tar.gz file) and: $ ./configure $ make all $ make check $ sudo make install # when it passes all check. (7) installation of FFTW we employ FFTW version 3.x # 29 February 2012 extracting tar file (double clicking tar.gz file) and: $ ./configure $ make all $ make check $ sudo make install (8) installing OpenKIM (Open Knowledge base Interatomic Model) download KIM API from #We employed version 1.1.1 or later. Extract the file and On Terminal $ export KIM_DIR=”the path to openkim” # ending with “/” # example: KIM_DIR = /Users/foo/openkim-api-v1.1.1/ $ cd $KIM_DIM $ make examples $ make (9) installing Voro++ (a software library for carrying out threedimensional computations of the Voronoi tessellation) download Vooro++ from #We employed Version 0.4.5 or later. Extract the file and on Terminal moving to the directory: voro++-0.4.5/ $ make $ sudo make install # files will be installed under /usr/local/. (10) Downloading Lammps the latest version is obtained from below: old versions are obtained from below: (11) building LAMMPS Remark: in Makefile, tab is used for spacing.
