Computational Investigation of Point Defect Formation and Migration in Nuclear Fuels
08 Mar 2012 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Susan Sinnott
The stabilities of selected fission products are investigated as a function of stoichiometry in uranium oxide. The approach is density functional theory (DFT) that is used to calculate the …
Computational Nanoscience, Lecture 17: Tight-Binding, and Moving Towards Density Functional Theory
21 Mar 2008 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Elif Ertekin, Jeffrey C Grossman
The purpose of this lecture is to illustrate the application of the Tight-Binding method to a simple system and then to introduce the concept of Density Functional Theory. The motivation to mapping …
Computational Nanoscience, Lecture 18: Density Functional Theory and some Solid Modeling
We continue our discussion of Density Functional Theory, and describe the most-often used approaches to describing the exchange-correlation in the system (LDA, GGA, and hybrid functionals). We …
Density Functional Theory: A great physics success story
23 Feb 2012 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Kieron Burke
Density functional theory began with the work of Thomas and Fermi, at about the same time as Schroedinger wrote his famous equation. I will explain in general terms what density functional theory …
