  3. Computational Investigation of Point Defect Formation and Migration in Nuclear Fuels

    08 Mar 2012 | | 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 incorporation and solution energies of solid and gaseous fission products at the anion and cation vacancy...

  4. Computational Mathematics: Role, Impact, Challenges

    20 Dec 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Juan C. Meza

    This presentation was one of 13 presentations in the one-day forum, "Excellence in Computer Simulation," which brought together a broad set of experts to reflect on the future of computational science and engineering.

  5. Density Functional Theory: A great physics success story

    01 Mar 2012 | | 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 is and describe some problems of current interest.
