About this book

This book covers the theory of electronic structure of materials, with special emphasis on the usage of linear muffin-tin orbitals. Methodological aspects are given in detail as are examples of the method when applied to various materials. Different exchange and correlation functionals are described and how they are implemented within the basis of linear muffin-tin orbitals. Functionals covered are the local spin density approximation, generalised gradient approximation, self-interaction correction and dynamical mean field theory.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book describes the electron structure theory and its applications within the implementation by using the computer code for relativistic spin-polarized tests (RSPt). … the book presents a very interesting attempt to create a powerful electronic database of physical properties … . may be useful to students, post-graduate students, their teachers and researchers working in modern chemistry, physics and material sciences.” (I. A. Parinov, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1217, 2011)
