about

Computational Physics is now a discipline in its own right, comparable with theoretical and experimental physics. Computational Materials Science concentrates on the calculation of materials properties starting from microscopic theories. It has become a powerful tool in industrial research for designing new materials, modifying materials properties and optimizing chemical processes. This book focusses on the application of computational methods in new fields of research, such as nanotechnology, spintronics and photonics, which will provide the foundation for important technological advances in the future. Methods such as electronic structure calculations, molecular dynamics simulations and beyond are presented, the discussion extending from the basics to the latest applications.

Introduction.- Density Functional Theory and the Full-Potential Local-Orbital Approach.- Methods for Band Structure Calculations in Solids.- A Solid-State Theoretical Approach to the Optical Properties of Photonic Crystals.- Simulation of Active and Nonlinear Photonic Nanomaterials in the Finite-Difference Time-Domain Framework.- Symme...
