Welcome to HoW exciting! 2016
HoW exciting! 2016 consists of two closely related events, an international workshop and a hands-on tutorial about excitations in solids.
Workshop on excitations in solids (August 3-6, 2016)
Excitations in solids are among the most exciting phenomena in condensed-matter physics. In this context, the electronic-structure approach within density-functional theory (DFT) is the first level in a hierarchical set of models which are needed to quantitatively describe and understand these phenomena in real materials. The relationship of the different computational techniques and domains of applicability is still a challenging task. At the same time, advances in theoretical and computational methods go hand in hand with the progresses in experimental techniques.
The main goals of this workshop are:
The workshop is organized in topical sessions, including invited and contributed talks. Basic concepts will be discussed, and applications to real functional materials will be presented, with the main focus on theory but also from an experimental perspective. The major topics will comprise first-principles methodology for excitation processes in solids, including electronic excitations, electron-phonon coupling, core-excitations, and non-equilibrium processes.
Hands-on tutorial on excitations in solids (August 7-11, 2016)
This tutorial offers young scientists the opportunity to put into practice the knowledge acquired during the workshop. Hands-on exercises with the software package exciting will guide participants through the topics addressed in the workshop: From the basics of DFT to advanced topics, such as time-dependent DFT and many-body perturbation theory, as well as to their applications to real materials.
