  1. 1. Foundation of Density Functionals in the Presence of Magnetic Field

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Andre Laestadius; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Current density functional theory; Hohenberg-Kohn theorems; paramagnetic current density functionals; Kohn-Sham theory; Levy-Lieb functional; variational principle; N-representable; degeneracy; Matematik; Mathematics;

    Abstract : This thesis contains four articles related to mathematical aspects of Density Functional Theory.In Paper A, the theoretical justification of density methods formulated with current densities is addressed. It is shown that the set of ground-states is determined by the ensemble-representable particle and paramagnetic current density. READ MORE

  2. 2. Computational Insights on Functional Materials for Clean Energy Storage Modeling, Structure and Thermodynamics

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Tanveer Hussain; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Density functional theory; Molecular dynamics; Hydrogen storage; Chemisorption; Physisorption; Functionalization; Physics with spec. in Atomic; Molecular and Condensed Matter Physics; Fysik med inriktning mot atom- molekyl- och kondenserande materiens fysik;

    Abstract : The exponential increase in the demands of world’s energy and the devastating effects of current fossil fuels based sources has forced us to reduce our dependence on the current sources as well as finding cleaner, cheaper and renewable alternates. Being abundant, efficient and renewable, hydrogen can be opted as the best possible replacement of the diminishing and harmful fossil fuels. READ MORE

  4. 4. Spin Dynamics and Magnetic Multilayers

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Björn Skubic; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physics; magnetism; electronic structure; density functional theory; spin dynamics; spin-transfer torque; spin-density wave; multilayer; interface structure; Fysik;

    Abstract : Theoretical studies based on first-principles theory are presented for a number of different magnetic systems. The first part of the thesis concerns spin dynamics and the second part concerns properties of magnetic multilayers. The theoretical treatment is based on electronic structure calculations performed by means of density functional theory. READ MORE

  5. 5. Electronic structure studies and method development for complex materials

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Andreas Östlin; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; electronic structure theory; density functional theory; Materials Science and Engineering; Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : Over the years electronic structure theory has proven to be a powerful method with which one can probe the behaviour of materials, making it possible to describe and predict material properties. The numerical tools needed for these methods are always in need of development, since the desire to calculate more complex materials pushes this field forward. READ MORE
