GW2005: "40 Years of the GW Approximation for the Electronic Self-Energy: Achievements and Challenges"

12 Sep 2005

356th Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Seminar


Since its original conception in 1965, the GW approximation has become an indispensable tool for ab initio electronic-structure calculations and is now recognised as the most accurate method to study excited states in solids. The last few years, in particular, have seen a marked rise in new applications and theoretical developments. The 356th Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Seminar will focus on the current progress and on the perspectives for the investigation of electronic excitations from first principles.
