General Lab Information


In this school, the researchers affiliated with Comscope, a BNL-based, DOE-BES funded, Computational Materials Science Center, will provide an overview of its software toolkit that enables the computation of the electronic structure of real materials. An overview and hands-on training of three software modules will be provided: i) FlapwMBPT, an all electron first principles code that comes enabled with imaginary time GW and the ability to compute vertex corrections; ii) two dynamical mean field theory (DMFT)-based electronic structure codes employing either LDA or linearized self-consistent quasi-particle GW (LQSGW); iii) a code based on combining the rotationally invariant slave both method (RISB) and LDA that is considerable less expensive to run than LDA+DMFT or LQSGW+DMFT.
