EESTER-2018

Workshop on Evolution of Electronic Structure Theory & Experimental Realization

Organized by SRMIST and IIT Madras In association with MRSI Subject Group On
Computational Material Science & MRSI Chennai Chapter

11 - 13 September 2018 - SRM IST, Chennai, India
14 - 15 September 2018 - IITM, Chennai, India

WELCOME MESSAGE

During the last few decades, a large number of efficient computational techniques and algorithms have been developed for calculating the electronic structure of molecules, solids, surfaces and clusters. These methods span from very accurate quantum chemistry techniques applied to small molecules up to tight-binding semi-empirical schemes, which make it possible to simulate systems composed of several thousand atoms. The development of density functional theory (DFT) plays the key role opening a new avenue in materials science research i.e., the combined joint effort of DFT based calculations with an experiment to understand the research problem in more depth. Moreover, due to the advancement of modern supercomputing capabilities, electronic structure methods are not only successful in explaining experimental findings but also predicting materials with new functionalities.
