Density Functional Theory (DFT)

This page is intended to provide information useful for people using and/or developing density-functional theory based tools for electronic structure calculations. The main focus will be on usage and development of DFT methods within Sandia. If you do not find what you wanted and think we should know about it please send your comments to Peter Schultz.


There are a number of nice texts on DFT and here are some that we have been using. If you have a text that you like and would like to point to, please write a short review and send it to Peter Schultz.






SeqQuest is a general-purpose electronic structure code to compute energies and forces for periodic surfaces (slabs) or solids, or finite molecules.

A list including other DFT-based codes (not developed at Sandia) and their associated web links can be found here.
