In nanotechnology computer simulation is important to predict new materials!Previous first-principled method Pseudopotential PAW method

rcLarge Cutoff Energy for Plane WavesLack of core electron description

Plane WavesPrevious first-principles method Linear Combination of Atomic Orbitals (LCAO) Overlap integrals require heavy computations. It cannot describe positive energy (PW) states.It has a Basis Set Superposition Error (BSSE).Incomplete basis Limits in applicationsPrevious first-principles method Muffin-Tin OrbitalsLMTO, APW, KKRIt cannot handleisolated systems.

Many combinationsbetween inner sphericalwaves and outer PWs.

To solve these problems, we can usea new first-principles method:All-electronmixed basis approachTOMBO

Explained by Kawazoe in 2000Description of wave functions in all-electron mixed basis approach:

Plane Wave (PW)Bloch Function of AO

Atomic Orbital (AO) Best in DFT+LDAPresent standard programs:Planewave+pseudopotential(VASP, ABINIT no core electronsWIEN, FLAPW: heavy computation, no complete relaxation

Liang the first program using real electron transport via excited states using Wannier functionThermal transport: K. Esfarjani extension of phonon code including anharmonic termsVan der Waals force estimation: V. Belosldov computing dipoler polarization and diple-dipole interaction17Advantages:

The exact treatment of electronic wavefunctions in the bonding regions as well as in the core regions, which makes fast atom collision process can be treated.

Calculations need fewer number of plane-waves as compared to other PW-based methods

Properties associated with core levels, e.g. hyperfine structure, NMR shift can be accurately and efficiently computed with the modest computational effort.

Phonon: we were the first to compute frozen phonon vibration frequencies: >500 citations

In the case, H2 dissociate and comes to Ni dimer. If the charge transfer from H2 to Ni dimer occurs, this dissociation process occurred.

1. Ground state in iron???

2. hybrid model, LDA+U better than GGA?No! only a phenomenologygood for known materials, no power for prediction

53Accordingly!Better (than normal ab initio DFT) method is necessary to have confidence in our computational resultsBetween parallel spins, by the Paulis exclusion principle, electrons are separated, and they feel smaller Coulombic repulsion, and therefore the total energy reduces.Traditional explanation in the textbooks by Slater
