Originating Calendar
Physics - Institute for Condensed Matter Theory Seminar

DFT is now used in at least 50,000 scientific papers  each year. This talk will review the state of the art of modern DFT, both in materials science and chemistry.  I will look at the good, the bad, and the ugly. I will end by discussing functionals being found by machine-learning. It should be accessible to anyone with a background in quantum mechanics.
