The exciting Code

exciting is a full-potential all-electron density-functional-theory package implementing the families of linearized augmented planewave methods. It can be applied to all kinds of materials, irrespective of the atomic species involved, and also allows for exploring the physics of core electrons. A particular focus are excited states within many-body perturbation theory.


Dear friends,

we are aware that the current situation due to the COVID-19 emergency is causing significant uncertainty concerning most of the events and conferences planned in the next months.

As concerns "HoW exciting! 2020", we are constantly watching the developments of the situation and we will soon take a decision about maintaining (in the current or in a web-based form) the event or postponing to a later appointment.

We wish everyone to keep healthy.

The organizers

LOGO-transparent.png We announce "HoW exciting! 2020". It consists of two closely related events, an hands-on tutorial (July 23-28, 2020) and a international workshop (July 28-31, 2020) about excitations in solids. Both the conference and the hands-on tutorial will take place at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.
