Aims and scope:

    The purpose of the school is to provide an introduction to DFT for beginners (master students, PhDs, and post-docs) ranging from its theoretical foundations to practical implementations in computer softwares. In particular, the full electron full potential augmented plane method will be described as implemented in the Exciting software. The necessary know-how for calculating materials property such as structural, magnetic, linear and non-linear optical, and magneto-optical properties etc will be discussed through hands-on sessions and tutorials. Last but not least, an introduction to the NOMAD project, i.e. Novel Materials Discovery, will be given.

Exciting Shanghai School will be held Baoshan Campus of Shanghai University,
