Getting started

VASP6 Features that will only be available in VASP.6.X.
How to Install VASP First install VASP.
Workshops The collection of workshops is a good place for the introduction to the basics of VASP.
Lectures The collection of lectures is a good place to start as well.
Tutorials and Examples The collection of tutorials and examples is a good place to learn the usage of VASP.
