The Winter School "Computational Magnetism" will be held February 20-23 at the Vienna University of Technology. The school is an initiative of the SFB ViCoM (Vienna Computational Materials Laboratory) funded by the Austrian Science Foundation FWF and is organized by Lilia Boeri, Cesare Franchini, Peter Mohn and Alessandro Toschi.

The school, geared towards graduate students and postdocs in physics, chemistry, and materials science, provides the participants with the basic foundations of magnetism in condensed matter, and a practical introduction to ab initio methods (DFT and DMFT) for modelling magnetic materials developed within the SFB ViCoM (VASP, Wien2k, TRIQS).

The lectures will be given by

  • Gustav Bihlmayer, Research Center Juelich, Germany
  • Stephen Blundell, University of Oxford, UK
