The main goal of this Tutorial is to introduce young scientists to the theoretical foundations of state-of-the-art first-principles techniques based on and going beyond densitiy-functional theory (DFT). On the same occasion, there will be the opportunity to put this knowledge into practice through hands-on exercises with the software package exciting.
Keynote lectures will be given by world-leading experts in various fields. They will comprise the cornerstones of DFT, time-dependent DFT (TDDFT), many-body perturbation theory (MBPT) for one- and two-body Green functions, and linear-response theory. Besides the fundamental concepts, some presentations will be dedicated to cutting-edge applications such as thermoelectricity or the physics of carbon monolayers.

Looking forward to seeing you in Berlin!
