Virtual Psi-k GreenALM Hands-on Tutorial 2021
Oct. 11-14, 2021
Thanks to all speakers and participants!
The first Psi-k GreenALM hands-on tutorial took place from Oct. 11-14, 2021, in virtual form.
GreenALM (Green’s functions based Alloy Modeling) is a software toolkit based on density functional theory using a Green’s functions approach developed at Materials Center Leoben (MCL). It is especially efficient and versatile for the calculation of chemically and magnetically complex alloys, including random multicomponent alloys and paramagnetic systems.
This tutorial combined lectures by outstanding scientists in the fields of density functional theory (DFT), alloy theory and materials simulation with introductions to the features of the GreenALM code and hands-on sessions about calculations of alloy properties.
List of speakers (with preliminary titles)
- Claudia Draxl, Humboldt-Universität Berlin (Basics of DFT)
- Blazej Grabowski, University of Stuttgart (Alloy thermodynamics)
- Sergei Simak, Linköping University (Structural transitions)
- Pasha Korzhavyi, KTH Stockholm (Mechanical properties + defects from ab-initio)
- Francesco Maresca, University of Groningen (Multi-scale simulation of mechanical properties and solid-solution strengthening)
- Julie Staunton, University of Warwick (Green's function DFT for alloys)
