Density-functional method for nonequilibrium electron transport
We describe an ab initio method for calculating the electronic structure, electronic transport, and forces acting on the atoms, for atomic scale systems connected to semi-infinite electrodes and with
Methods for electronic-structure calculations: Overview from a reduced-density-matrix point of view
The methods of quantum chemistry and solid state theory to solve the many-body problem are reviewed. We start with the definitions of reduced density matrices, their properties (contraction sum
Wave-function-based approach to quasiparticle bands: Insight into the electronic structure of c-ZnS
Ab initio wave-function-based methods are employed for the study of quasiparticle energy bands of zinc-blende ZnS, with focus on the Zn 3d "semicore" states. The relative energies of these states
Elusive s-f intrasite interactions and double exchange in solids: Ferromagnetic versus nonmagnetic ground state
From the theory of many-electron states in atoms, we know that there exists a strong Coulomb repulsion, which results in the electronic term structure of atoms and is responsible for Hund’s rules. By
Ab initio Green's function formalism for band structures
Using the Green's function formalism, an ab initio theory for band structures of crystals is derived starting from the Hartree-Fock approximation. It is based on the algebraic diagrammatic
Quantum chemical ab initio calculations of the magnetic interaction in alkalithioferrates(III)
Quantum chemical ab initio calculations for two ternary thioferrate crystals, Na5FeS4 and Na3FeS3, have been performed. Using a cluster model approach with 250 optimized point charges for the single
Molecular dynamics method to itinerant magnets with complex magnetic structure
A molecular dynamics method which allows us to determine the magnetic structures of itinerant magnets with a few hundred atoms in a unit cell has been developed on the basis of the functional

Although electron correlations cause a pronounced shift of the quasiparticle band structure of the chains with respect to the Hartree-Fock result, the bandwidth essentially remains unaltered in contrast to, e.g., covalently bound compounds.
Electronic structure of multiorbital correlated systems
We propose a numerically exact scheme to calculate the local electronic structure and magnetic properties of correlated systems. The scheme employs the recently developed determinantal Continuous
