XML in Computational Physics
The XML format
offers a number of advantages for computational physics: clear markup of
input data and results, standardized data formats, and easier exchange and
archival stability of data.
are now starting to use it for quantum many body simulations and are in
the process of developing XML schemas for classical and quantum simulations.
You are welcome to join our efforts.
XML schemas for computational physics
We have developed draft schemas and accompanying XSLT style files for:
We encourage everybody to provide input to these drafts, and to develop
their own formats.
For an example output of an actual Monte Carlo simulation look at
, an example XML file, which can be viewed directly using the XSLT file
in Netscape 6, or Internet Explorer 6
We have created a mailing list to discuss the usage of XML in computational
We gladly acknowledge the generous support of
, the makers of the XML Spy Suite
, the best product for editing and creating XML contents.
