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...

Quantum Mechanics: Stationary Perturbation Theory
10 Jul 2008   Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
Stationary perturbation theory is concerned with finding the changes in the discrete energy levels and the changes in the corresponding energy eigenfunctions of a system, when the Hamiltonian of a system is changed by a small amount. In this section we provide reading material regarding...

Quantum Mechanics: TimeDependent Perturbation Theory
10 Jul 2008   Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
Timedependent perturbation theory, developed by Paul Dirac, studies the effect of a timedependent perturbation V(t) applied to a timeindependent Hamiltonian H0. Since the perturbed Hamiltonian is timedependent, so are its energy levels and eigenstates. Therefore, the goals of timedependent...

Quantum Mechanics: WKB Approximation
09 Jul 2008   Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
In physics, the WKB (Wentzel–Kramers–Brillouin) approximation, also known as WKBJ (Wentzel–Kramers–Brillouin–Jeffreys) approximation, is the most familiar example of a semiclassical calculation in quantum mechanics in which the wavefunction is recast as an exponential function, semiclassically...
