New lecture: Computing the properties of materials and devices from first principles: 25 years of SIESTA
SIESTA is both a method and its computer program implementation, to perform efficient electronic structure calculations and ab initio molecular dynamics simulations of molecules and solids. The SIESTA program is open source and has become quite popular, being increasingly used by researchers in geosciences, biology, and engineering (apart from those in its natural habitat of materials physics and chemistry).
Dr. Pablo Ordejón (ICN2) is one of the iniciators of the project and he will give a lecture entitled “Computing the properties of materials and devices from first principles: 25 years of SIESTA” on October 9th at 12:00h in Aula Magna Enric Casassas.
The lecture is part of the “Màster de Química de Materials Aplicada”.
