Making Norm-conserving Pseudopotentials from Scratch
- Event time: 11:30am
- Event date: 3rd November 2010
- Speaker: Bengt Tegner (Formerly School of Physics & Astronomy, University of Edinburgh)
- Location: Room 2511, James Clerk Maxwell Building (JCMB) James Clerk Maxwell Building Peter Guthrie Tait Road Edinburgh EH9 3FD GB
In this talk, I'll be giving an introduction to the concept of a pseudopotential, followed by a presentation of the actual method for constructing a pseudopotential, mainly following the approach of Hamann, Schluter and Chiang. I will conclude with some comments on comments on practical performance and testing.
This is a roughly weekly series of didactical blackboard talks focussing on some theoretical aspect of Condensed Matter, Biological, and Statistical Physics..
