study the solution to the Kohn-Sham equation in the density functional theory of the quantum many-body problem in the context of the electronic structure of the smoothly deformed macroscopic crystals.
A Fellow of both the CIC and the Royal Society of Canada, Becke is a leader in the development of a relatively new approach to computational chemistry known as density functional theory.
Ab-Initio calculations that are based on Density Functional Theory (DFT) have provided useful simulations and the ability for scientists to calculate accurately a number of physical and chemical properties, some of which can either be compared directly to experiment or are complementary to it.
The photochemical rearrangement of phenylcarbene to cycloheptataraene has been studied using ab initio density functional theory coupled with atom-centered density matrix propagation (ADMP) molecular dynamics.
