Workshop on
Application of Density-Functional Theory in Condensed Matter Physics, Surface Physics, Chemistry, Engineering and Biology

23 July - 1 August 2001, Berlin

Sponsored by the Fritz-Haber-Institut der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, the ESF - STRUC Psi-k Programme and the Wilhelm und Else Heraeus-Stiftung.

This hands-on course focuses on the application of density-functional theory to electronic-structure calculations in different scientific fields and provides a practical introduction to the handling of pertinent software packages. As a specific example we consider the computer code FHImd. The workshop programme combines morning lectures, which elucidate the theoretical concepts and numerical procedures, with practical sessions in the computer laboratory where realistic research problems are tackled. In addition to condensed matter physics, special emphasis is placed on fields like biology and surface chemistry. The workshop is part of a biennial series and follows previous events in Berlin (1994, 1996) and Trieste (1999).

A retrospective report about the workshop results appeared in the Psi-k Newsletter #47 (October 2001), p. 9-10.
