SCL Seminar by Andreas Oestlin

SCL seminar of the Center for the Study of Complex Systems will be held on Thursday, 8 November 2018 at 14:00 in the library reading room “Dr. Dragan Popović" of the Institute of Physics Belgrade. The talk entitled

"Disorder and Correlation for Realistic Materials: a LDA+DMFT and CPA Approach"

will be given by Dr. Andreas Oestlin (Institute of physics, University of Augsburg, Germany).

Abstract of the talk:

We introduce a computational scheme for calculating the electronic structure of random alloys that includes electronic correlations within the framework of the combined density functional and dynamical mean-field theory. By making use of the particularly simple parameterization of the electron Green's function within the linearized muffin-tin orbitals method, it is possible to greatly simplify the embedding of the self-energy. This in turn facilitates the implementation of the coherent potential approximation, which is used to model the substitutional disorder. The computational technique is tested on the Cu-Pd binary alloy system, and for disordered Mn-Ni interchange in the half-metallic NiMnSb.
