Electronic Structure Discussion Group
The Electronic Structure Discussion Group (ESDG) is an informal
meeting of researchers from the Cavendish Laboratory Theory of Condensed Matter
(TCM) group and the Cambridge
University Centre for Computational Chemistry (CUC3), together
with their colleagues from the Earth Sciences (ES), Engineering (Eng)
and Materials Science and Metallurgy (MSM) departments at Cambridge
University. Various people from commutable universities in London also occasionally attend. ESDG meetings are intended to promote the exchange of
ideas between scientists who develop or use techniques such as density
functional theory, quantum Monte
Carlo, or quantum chemistry methods. Suitable subjects for presentations at ESDG
meetings might include the development of novel electronic structure methods
with greater accuracy or wider applicability, or the application of
such methods to systems of scientific or technological importance, though we
do encourage talks on any topic that people think may be of general interest to such an audience.
The ESDG is organized by Mike Towler and Joseph Nelson. Please contact Mike at mdt26 'at' cam.ac.uk or Joseph on jn336 'at' cam.ac.uk if you wish to volunteer for a talk, or if you have any questions or comments.
In the diary below, the names of speakers giving 40- and 20-minute
talks are shown in red
and green, respectively. The meetings are
on Wednesdays at 11am in the TCM Seminar room in the Cavendish Laboratory Mott building.
