Cu band structure

Korringa–Kohn–Rostoker method

Introduction As I mentioned in the previous post, I already have a project on KKR on GitHub1. I won’t add here a lot of description, I’ll point you some references instead. Usually I also try to add links to some other projects that are small enough to be comprehensible in a reasonable time, this time … Read more

Diamond band structure

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 more

Empirical Pseudopotential

Introduction I did not write anything on the blog for a long time. I was very busy, I had less time for it. Nevertheless, I did some work on some projects related with it. One of them, a DFT program that calculates a molecule with the supercell method, was supposed to be the theme for … Read more
