Registration closes: 22 April 2018
Where: STFC Hartree Centre, Sci-Tech Daresbury, Cheshire, UK
Price: £50. All local expenses (food, accommodation, local transportation & conference dinner) are covered by the organisers.
Best for: This is an opportunity for young researchers to learn about advanced electronic structure and how to use the Questaal Suite. This workshop is of interest to lecturers, post-docs and 3rd year PhD students. Good knowledge of solid state physics, including some background in many-body physics, and experience in running DFT codes are required.
Available spaces: 35
Prerequisites: Good knowledge of solid state physics, including some background in many-body physics, and experience in running DFT codes are required.
Summary: This 5 days course is organised by King's College, London and STFC, Daresbury lab with the support of Hartree Centre. The course will focus on QSGW and recent extensions in two contexts: extending many-body perturbation theory (MBPT) to include ladder diagrams, and by combining QSGW with Dynamical Mean Field Theory (DMFT). Other extensions include the calculation of spin and charge susceptibilities, either in MBPT or in a DMFT framework.
