Workshop on the FP-LMTO method and DMFT for correlation effects in solids
Start date: 26/08/2013
End date: 30/08/2013
A workshop on density functional theory (DFT) and dynamical mean-field theory (DMFT) as implemented in the full-potential linear muffin-tin orbital (FP-LMTO) code RSPt. The workshop has a strong emphasis on tutorials and hands-on sessions at the computer to familiarize participants with the computational methods, particularly emphasizing problems concerning magnetism, heavy elements and strong-correlation physics within the LDA+DMFT framework. LDA+DMFT has been applied with great success to a wide set of problems particularly to compounds containing magnetic transition metals, lanthanides and actinides, where often both correlation and relativistic effects need to be addressed. This workshop aims to bring these more advanced methods to a larger circle of DFT practitioners not in immediate contact with groups where development takes place.

The intended target group for the tutorials is PhD students and researchers interested in learning to handle these techniques. Some previous knowledge of DFT-based methods is an advantage, but not essential. Participants in the tutorial sessions will also be encouraged to bring own research problems suitable for the course to get guidance with setting them up with RSPt. Additional problems will be provided for further in-depth study and a course certificate can be provided for students who complete these.
