NoThe terahertz frequency spectrum of pentaerythritol tetranitrate (PETN) is calculated using Discover[1] with the COMPASS[2] force field, CASTEP[3] and PWscf.[4] The calculations are compared to each other and to terahertz spectra (0.3-3 THz) of crystalline PETN recorded at 4 K. A number of analysis methods are used to characterise the calculated normal modes
