Summer school : Density Functional Theory

mercredi 4 mars 2015.

A summer school dedicated to the theoretical and pratical aspects of density functional theory will be held in Orsay (June 15-20).

The course includes an intensive week of lecturers and student activities directed by :
- Dennis Salahub : Generalities and historic of DFT, Hohenberg and Kohn theorems, Kohn-Sham approach...)
- Andreas Köster : Modern methodologies for solving the KS equations (Resolution of the Identify, variational density fitting, parallelization techniques...). Auxiliary Density Perturbation Theory (ADPT) ; application to the calculation of molecular properties.
- Vladimir Malkin : Calculation of NMR and EPR parameters by DFT.
- Mark Casida : Time-Dependent DFT for simulating electronic spectra.
- Lars Petterson : Inner-shell spectroscopies (NEXAFS, XES)
- Patrizia Calaminici : Ab initio molecular dynamics simulations (Born-Oppenheimer MD, Car-Parrinello MD, thermostats for NVT simulations).
- Isabelle Navizet : DFT/MM approaches (subtractive and additive schemes, embedding techniques, treatments of QM-MM boarders, type of DFT/MM calculations available with deMon2k…) 
- Augusto Oliveira : DFTB (basic theory, self-consistent-charge…)

The practical classes will serve in part to illustrate the theoretical classes by running simple test cases with the programs deMon2k and deMon-nano. Afternoon sessions will be devoted to work on specific projects. Each participant will be proposed to work on one or two projects of his choice, eventually by groups of a few people. The last day will be organized a mini-symposium in Paris during which the participants will have the occasion to present their results.
