Research summary

Research in the area of ab initio electronic structure theory, and methods that implement them. Most recently he developed with T. Kotani the Quasiparticle Self-consistent GW (QSGW) theory, a new approach to the GW approximation. In 1988 he created the “standard” Stuttgart tight-binding linear muffin-tin orbitals (LMTO) ASA package. Since then he has designed a variety of other methods, including accurate full-potential LDA codes for both solids and molecules, Green’s function techniques for transport in layered systems, Green’s function methods to calculate magnetic exchange interactions, and next-generation methods now under development. Another research area concerns the ab initio treatment of magnetism, most recently exchange interactions and transport in dilute magnetic semiconductors.
