HoW exciting! Hands on workshop on excitations in solids 2018


The main goal of this Workshop is to introduce young scientists to the theoretical foundations of state-of-the-art ab initio techniques through keynote lectures given by world-leading experts. At the same time, the participants will put this knowledge into practice through hands-on expercises with the software package “exciting”, guided step by step by the tutors working in the code development team (http://exciting-code.org). “exciting” is an all-electron full potential code, based on density-functional theory (DFT), which comprises implementations of time-dependent DFT (TDDFT) as well as many-body perturbation theory (MBPT), including GW and the Beth-Salpeter equation.
