Muffin Tins, Green's Functions, and more!
MetadataShow full item record
This presentation was originally presented as part of the 2005 Cornell Nanoscale Facility Fall Workshop, "Modeling the Nanoscale World". An overview of multiple scattering theory and how it relates to electronic structure in materials is provided. In addition, different approaches based on this theory such as the Korringa Kohn Rostoker (KKR) technique and the linear muffin-tin orbital approach (LMTO) are described. Finally an overview of Green's function techniques related to nanoscale transport is also provided.
The Cornell Nanoscale Facility is part of the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NNIN). The NNIN is made possible through funding from the National Science Foundation.
