ABINIT: FirstTime User Guide
09 Jun 2009   Contributor(s):: Benjamin P Haley
This firsttime 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...

From 1 well to 2 wells to 5 wells to periodic potentials: an Exercise
02 Jul 2008   Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This exercise demonstrates that the interaction between the wells lifts the degeneracy of the quasibound states and if in the limit we have infinite periodic potential it leads to formation of energy bands. Notice that when the interaction is less strong the energy levels are more sharp and the...
