The exciting Code

exciting is a full-potential all-electron density-functional-theory package implementing the families of linearized augmented planewave methods. It can be applied to all kinds of materials, irrespective of the atomic species involved, and also allows for exploring the physics of core electrons. A particular focus are excited states within many-body perturbation theory.

“exciting NEWS 2021” - June 16-23

LOGO-transparent.png We are pleased to announce the upcoming online tutorial exciting NEWS 2021 running on June 16, 18, 21, and 23.

This event is a light version of the HoW exciting! workshop and will consist of keynote lectures as well as selected hands-on sessions related to new advancements in the full-potential all-electron code exciting.

The talks and tutorials are planned on the following topics:

  • Advanced exchange-correlation functionals and GW methodology,
  • The Bethe-Salpether-equation formalism,
  • Electron-phonon coupling,
  • Time-dependent DFT, dynamics, and transport properties.
