Nature of problem:
ab initio simulation of cw-ESR spectra of radicals in solution

Solution method:
E-SpiReS uses an hydrodynamic approach to calculate the diffusion tensor of the molecule, DFT methodologies to evaluate magnetic tensors and linear algebra techniques to solve numerically the stochastic Liouville equation to obtain an ESR spectrum

Running time:
variable depending on the task. It takes seconds for small molecules in the fast motional regime to hours for big molecules in viscous and / or ordered media.
