In this paper, we present a new version of the iQIST software package, which is capable of solving various quantum impurity models by using the hybridization expansion (or strong coupling expansion) continuous-time quantum Monte Carlo algorithm. In the revised version, the software architecture is completely redesigned. New basis (intermediate representation or singular value decomposition representation) for the single-particle and two-particle Green’s functions is introduced. A lot of useful physical observables are added, such as the charge susceptibility, fidelity susceptibility, Binder cumulant, and autocorrelation time. Especially, we optimize measurement for the two-particle Green’s functions. Both the particle-hole and particle–particle channels are supported. In addition, the block structure of the two-particle Green’s functions is exploited to accelerate the calculation. Finally, we fix some known bugs and limitations. The computational efficiency of the code is greatly enhanced. The previous version of this program (AEWQ_v1_0) may be found at http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.cpc.2015.04.020.
