Digital- & Präsenz-basierter Kurs

This Lecture conveys the foundation and the practical application of computational electronic-structure calculation for molecules and solids. Particular emphasis will be put on the step from theoretical, quantum-mechanical concepts to their implementation in modern software packages as well as on a critical discussion of their reliability and limitations. The aim of the lecture is, on one hand, to present the challenges in modern materials science and, on the other hand, to enable students to independently address scientific problems through computer-based modeling.
