We present a new paper on Density Functional Polarization Theory (DFPT). This theory is an extension of Time-Dependent-DFT where the exchange correlation functional depends not only from the density but also from the polarization P. Thanks to this explicit dependence on P it is possible solve different problems of TD-DFT in periodic systems with a… Read More
I started two new projects. The first one is a special version of the Yambo code to calculate excitons at finite momentum, you can find the code here: Finite Momentum Bethe-Salpeter. The second is a real-time version of Quantum Espresso in collaboration with Davide Ceresoli.
This year I participated to the cake contest organized in Marseille for the PI-day. Although my cake the PI-ramisù has reported considerable success I did not win the competition. I enjoyed the PI-day, next year I will try again to win the competition with a better cake. Here below a photo of the other cakes. During… Read More
