DFT: Density Functional Theory

Module title: Density Functional Theory (DFT)

Module convenor: Martin Lueders (Daresbury/Warwick)


"This module will include both a series of lectures on the basics of density functional theory and some of its implementations for solids, and also a hands-on session for the students to use one of the freely available codes (ABINIT) to calculate some model bandstructure. The plan is to deliver this module in two blocks over March 2,3,4 and March 9,10,11 (2009) in Warwick. One of these blocks would be AGN teaching. For the other block all students would be present in Warwick when the hands-on work would be done. Accommodation for the two nights would be arranged at Warwick."
