Basis Sets and Pseudopotentials in Periodic LCAO Calculations

Part of the Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences book series (SSSOL, volume 153)


The choice of the basis set is of particular importance when treating periodic systems where a large variety of chemical bonding can be found. The following three approaches to the basis-set choice define three types of methods of the electronic-structure calculations in crystals [10]: atomic-sphere (AS) methods, plane-wave (PW) methods, localized atomic-like orbitals (LCAO) methods. Each method has its advantages and disadvantages.
