NST651 Computational Nanoscience: Electronic Structure Theory

Lecturer: Prof. Yong-Hyun Kim (, Tel: 1111)

Text Book: Electronic Structure: Basic Theory and Practical Methods (Richard M. Martin)

Time: 9:30-11:00 AM, Monday and Wednesday, Fall, 2010
Place: Room 408, Creative Learning Building (E11)

Course Description: Computational simulation should be considered as a third means in
modern research sciences, in addition to traditional methods like experiment and theory. For
last two decades, the predicting power of computational nanomaterials science has been
improved significantly owing to the rapid development of multiprocessors, parallelcomputing
linux clusters, and computational algorithms. From this class, you will learn
methodologies of modern computational materials science and details of electronic structure
theories, and also will perform a simple simulational research project using the state-of-theart
softwares such as VASP and PWscf.
