Please use your real name as user name, so that the host can identify and include you. We would like to inform also that the lectures will be recorded locally. For more information see also: Electronic structure of solids with examples which include also strongly correlated systems: • Tight-Binding calculations • One-particle vs. Many-body framework • Ground state and Excitations • Density of States and Spectral Weights, Doping dependence • H2 molecule – Heitler-London, Hubbard • Peierls transition • Transition Metal Oxides: configuration interaction • Kondo systems: Gunnarsson and Schönhammer
Scope: Vorlesung: 2 Stunden/Woche
Time/Location: MI(2)REC/C118
Audience: Vertiefung Bachelor (PV) und Master (alle)
Specialization area: Elektronische Eigenschaften von Festkörpern (Vorlesung im Fakultativteil der Wahlpflichtvertiefung)
Previous knowledge: Quantum Mechanics, Solid State Physics
Certificate: Ja / Yes
Enrolment: 1. Vorlesung / 1st Lecture: 6 Mai 2020
The lecture aims to explain the basic concepts and tools to describe the electronic structure of solid state materials. The contrast between one-particle approaches and (unsolvable) many-body models will be clarified. Hands-on exercises using computers will be presented to address topics such as the transition metal oxides (cuprates, ruthenates) and Kondo systems.
