Classics in molecular and materials modelling: David Vanderbilt and Raffaele Resta

Mar 23, 2021, from 15:00 until 17:30, Online

David Vanderbilt (Rutgers University) and Raffaele Resta (IOM-CNR Democritos, Trieste) will give a joint lecture on "Berry phases in condensed matter physics", in what will be the fourth event in the series "Classics in molecular and materials modelling" hosted by CECAM and MARVEL.

In this series, methods that have become fundamental tools in computational physics and chemistry will be presented by their originators at a level appropriate for second-year-master and graduate students. The lectures will be followed by an interview with the presenters: we’ll ask them to recall for us the period, problems, people and circumstances that accompanied the creation of milestone methods and algorithms that we now routinely use. 

We hope that you will be able to join us and share with us this unusual and interesting opportunity to learn first hand from pioneers who have contributed significantly to our field and to get to know better the history and anecdotes behind work that is now recorded in books.
