Topics

Topics to be covered during the school include:

  • Ab initio many-body methods for electron-phonon physics
  • 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
  • GW and GW-Bethe-Salpeter-equation theories for excited states
  • Quasiparticle band structures, optical phenomena, and exciton physics
  • GW perturbation theory for electron-phonon coupling with self-energy effects


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