ABINIT: First-Time User Guide
09 Jun 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Benjamin P Haley
This first-time user guide provides an introduction to using ABINIT on nanoHUB. We include a very brief summary of Density Functional Theory along with a tour of the Rappture interface. We discuss the default simulation (what happens if you don't change any inputs, and just hit "simulate") as...
Computational Nanoscience, Lecture 19: Band Structure and Some In-Class Simulation: DFT for Solids
out of 5 stars
30 Apr 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Jeffrey C Grossman, Elif Ertekin
In this class we briefly review band structures and then spend most of our class on in-class simulations. Here we use the DFT for molecules and solids (Siesta) course toolkit. We cover a variety of solids, optimizing structures, testing k-point convergence, computing cohesive energies, and...
Computational Nanoscience, Lecture 28: Wish-List, Reactions, and X-Rays.
16 May 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Jeffrey C Grossman, Elif Ertekin
After a brief interlude for class feedback on the course content and suggestions for next semester, we turn to modeling chemical reactions. We describe chain-of-state methods such as the Nudged Elastic Band for determining energy barriers. The use of empirical, QM/MM methods are described. We...
