IMA 2013 UQ: DFT-based Thermal Properties: Three Levels of Error Management
02 Apr 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Kurt Lejaeghere
It is often computationally expensive to predict finite-temperature properties of a crystal from density-functional theory (DFT). The temperature-dependent thermal expansion coefficient α, for example, is calculated from the phonon spectrum, and the melting temperature Tm can only be obtained...
