RWTH Aachen: Introduction to plane-wave DFT and DFTK

This lecture provides a brief introduction into plane-wave density-functional theory (DFT) and the density-functional toolkit (DFTK). Some familiarity with molecular electronic structure theory is assumed, but since the lecture does aim at discussing the details no in-depth knowledge is required.

It was delivered as a guest lecture in the SS 2020 version of the class Mathematical Aspects of Computational Chemistry by Prof. Dr. Benjamin Stamm at RWTH Aachen.
