Hands-on Workshop on Excitations in Solids 2014 (CECAM)


The main goal of this Tutorial 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 exercises with the software package exciting, guided step by step by the tutors working in the code development team. 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.
