Topics to be covered during the school include:

  • Quantum Espresso with GPUs
  • Maximally-localized Wannier functions
  • Boltzmann transport equation for carrier transport
  • Migdal-Eliashberg theory of phonon-mediated superconductivity
  • Phonon-assisted indirect optical absorption
  • Polaronic states and self-trapping
  • Special displacement method for finite-temperature calculations
  • Ab initio many-body methods for electron-phonon physics
  • GW quasiparticle calculations and GW perturbation theory

Hands-on sessions will be based on the following software:
