As in previous ACCMS conferences, we will organize one-day pre-conference workshop on 8 August 2017. In the ACCMS-9, we offer a workshop on using Tohoku Mixed-Basis Orbitals ab-initio program (TOMBO).
The workshop provides a good opportunity to learn TOMBO with the tutoring of the authors and developers of the code. The workshop activities will be aimed at
researchers from Industry
engineering, science and life-science
This full-day workshop includes lectures on the scientific aspects of the methods, applications, and hand-on sessions. Lectures and hand-on sessions will be conducted with the aim of imparting the participants on ab initio simulation for explaining materials properties and for performing ab initio design of new materials.
The pre-requisite of the workshop is to have a basic knowledge of quantum mechanics, solid state physics, and chemistry.
During the hand-on session of TOMBO, participants need to bring own laptopcomputer.
TOMBO is an efficient all-electron mixed basis (first-principles calculation) code, which uses both plane waves and atomic orbitals as a basis set. It can treat not only periodic systems (supercell systems and crystals) but also isolated systems (atoms, clusters, and molecules).
In addition to usual LDA calculations, the GW approximation for low lying levels, time-dependent density functional theory (TTDFT) for tracing chemical reactions, core related properties such as hyperfine structures, and absolute energy value estimation of electron affinity and ionization potential are also possible.
