Density Functional Theory | ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science

What is Density Functional Theory and what problems does it solve?

Learn the basics in our online tutorial. 

Dr Sherif Abbas of RMIT University provides a brief historical overview of DFT and its role in revolutionising material science and chemistry. 

He demonstrates DFT's success stories via several highly cited, recent papers and explains what DFT offers to experimentalists.

This talk is aimed at experimentalists with no background of DFT, as well as theoreticians who wish to learn about how to make DFT more relevant to real-life applications.
