Correlated Electrons


Lecture details

The lecture will be given by Professor Koch

The following detailed description along with organizational issues can be found on the corresponding website


  • Atoms and transition metal ions
  • Adding angular momenta
  • Relativistic corrections
  • Many-electrons: mean-field approximation
  • Numerical solution of the radial Schrödinger equation
  • Many-electrons: second quantization
  • Atomic multiplets
  • Exchange mechanisms
  • Hubbard and Heisenberg model, Mott transition
  • Crystal field theory

Specialized learning goals:

  • Understanding the effects of electron correlation in finite systems and of the methods for their efficient simulation.

General learning goals:

  • Planning and managing of a small scientific software project.
  • Presentation and discussion of the results.
