Local Density Functional Calculations on Properties of Large Molecules

  • B. Delley
Conference paper


The local density functional is a well tested way to calculate quantum mechanical properties of atoms, molecules and solids. The Dmol implementation of such calculations is briefly introduced. A short overview on applications is given. Summaries of systematic studies are shown to guide expectations on the performance of the approach. Some applications are shown to illustrate the present capability.
