DFT for an atom

Introduction I have a new project on GitHub1. The project is using Density Functional Theory to do calculations for an atom. The project is actually not so new, I’ve put it on GitHub more than three months ago, but it had some issues I had to solve and also I did not have patience until … Read moreDFT for an atom

Quantum Scattering

Introduction I have a project on GitHub about Quantum Scattering1 on a Lennard-Jones potential. The idea is from chapter 2 of a book2 I already mentioned on this blog. For this project I won’t put theory here, but refer you to the book instead. It’s a very good book, it’s worth having. I don’t know … Read moreQuantum Scattering

Chaos

Introduction People never cease to amaze me. By that I mean both laymen and ‘scientists’. I’ve seen many opinions of laymen about some sort of a ‘balance’ existing in all sorts of systems that no knowledgeable individual could claim to be in equilibrium. I’ve seen pretenses that the evil and sinning humans are ‘disrupting’ that … Read moreChaos

Tight Binding

Introduction There are many methods to calculate band structures of crystals. I implemented the Empirical Pseudopotential project, some of the code can be reused for other methods. One of the methods is simple and fast, the tight binding method, so I simply took the code from the last project, cut a part out and modified … Read moreTight Binding
