  author={Joonho Lee and Adam Rettig and Xintian Feng and Evgeny Epifanovsky and Martin Head‐Gordon},
In this work, we developed and showcased the occ-RI-K algorithm to compute the exact exchange contribution in density functional calculations of solids near the basis set limit. Within the gaussian planewave (GPW) density fitting, our algorithm achieves a 1-2 orders of magnitude speedup compared to conventional GPW algorithms. Since our algorithm is well-suited for simulations with large basis sets, we applied it to 12 hybrid density functionals with pseudopotentials and a large uncontracted…

Large-Scale Benchmark of Exchange–Correlation Functionals for the Determination of Electronic Band Gaps of Solids

The comparison of experimental and theoretical band gaps shows that the modified Becke–Johnson is at the moment the best available density functional, closely followed by the Heyd–Scuseria–Ernzerhof screened hybrid from 2006 and the high-local-exchange generalized-gradient approximation.

Accurate Hartree-Fock energy of extended systems using large Gaussian basis sets

Calculating highly accurate thermochemical properties of condensed matter via wave-function-based approaches (such as, e.g., Hartree-Fock or hybrid functionals) has recently attracted much interest.

A library of Gaussian basis sets that has been specifically optimized to perform accurate molecular calculations based on density functional theory and can be used in first principles molecular dynamics simulations and is well suited for linear scaling calculations.

Hybrid functionals for solids with an optimized Hartree–Fock mixing parameter

This work proposes a scheme where the connection between ε and α is optimized based on experimental band gaps, and shows that this approach can be combined with a non-self-consistent hybrid approximation to speed up the calculations considerably, while retaining an excellent accuracy in most cases.

This work provides a method, within the rigorous framework of generalized Kohn–Sham theory, that can accurately predict the band gap of a material, to within experimental uncertainty, using a specific class of density functionals called range-separated hybrid functionals.
