Title:Linear Scaling Methods for Density Functional Theory
Seminar:CCMA Luncheon Seminar
Speaker:Carlos Garcia-Cervera, University of California, Santa Barbara
Abstract Link:
Abstract: Density Functional Theory (DFT) provides a way to carry out realistic computations of molecular systems at the quantum level. Typical approaches scale as N^3, where N is the number of electrons in the system. I will give an introduction to DFT, and describe some of the approaches developed for linear scaling algorithms. I will also describe our own approach, which is based on a subspace iteration, and takes advantage of the localization properties of nonorthogonal wave functions.
