Electronic Structure Theory
by Patrick Rinke
Publisher: Fritz Haber Institute 2014
Number of pages: 63
The goal of electonic structure theory is to be predictive. Computational Electronic Structure Theory is an ever-growing field which combines theoretical physics and chemistry with computer science and math. Contents: The Schroedinger Equation; Wave Function based approaches; Density Functional Theory; Green's Function Theory.
